Poverty and Disability among Indian Elderly: Evidence from Household Survey
Manoj K. Pandey ()
ASARC Working Papers from The Australian National University, Australia South Asia Research Centre
The paper examines the association between marital status and self-reported health status of Indian adults. A nationally representative cross-sectional data surveyed by National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO) in 2004 is used. Results confirm linkages between marital status and health and show that this relationship is sensitive to the age and gender. Based on findings, the paper argues that the implication of marital status on health could be different for adults of different age group and gender.
