● Distribution of self-reported health in India: The role of income and geography
download paper

Self-reported health (SRH) is an important health outcomes measure. In this paper, we examine a large-scale household survey dataset in India. We establish basic facts about SRH and its relationship with household characteristics. We find that location heterogeneity is a major element of the statistical variation of ill-health, apart from age and income. Increased income is correlated with improved health in about half of the country.
