Income Inequality and Health Status in the United States: Evidence from the Current Population Survey.
Mellor, Jennifer M.; Milyo, Jeffrey
Journal of Human Resources, v37 n3 p510-39 Sum 2002
Current Population Survey data on self-reported health status and income for the general population and those in poverty were analyzed. No consistent association was found between income inequality and individual health status. Previous findings of such an association were attributed to ecological fallacy or failure to control for individual covariates, year effects, and geographic characteristics. (Contains 78 references.)
