Hypothesis: The CS family grows by KH- KH- health and health develops institutional CS. Methodology: probit model that explains "the probability of an individual to receive decent care health monitoring by insurance, per capita GDP , schooling, community perception of" health " as a problem and limitation of fundamental rights by discrimination.
