Abstract

Haciendo uso de los datos de la Encuesta sobre Salud, Bienestar y Envejecimiento, este trabajo analiza el estado de salud de las personas mayores a 60 años en cinco países de América Latina: Argentina, Brasil, Chile, México y Uruguay. Empleando modelos probit ordenados fue posible investigar los efectos de variables socioeconómicas sobre el estado de salud auto-reportado. Los resultados indican que la autopercepción de la salud está relacionada positivamente con una buena nutrición, una mayor educación y un estilo de vida activo. Los individuos que se encuentran satisfechos con su ingreso actual reportaran, probablemente, una salud mejor. Se encontró, igualmente, que el nivel socioeconómico en las etapas iniciales de la vida influencia el estado de salud auto-reportado, lo cual tiene importantes implicaciones para la política de salud pública. Finalmente, la relación entre las variables socioeconómicas y la autopercepción de la salud es consistente para los cinco países.
