Health demand and health determinants in China
This paper identifies health determinants in rural and urban China. Using the 2000 wave of the China Health and Nutrition Survey, we find that education has an important positive effect on health. We also find that regional location is an important determinant of health. Our results indicate that the self-reported health status is not significantly different between the urban and the rural population. Our study suggests that Chinese males have better health than females, and married persons have better health than single persons. We also find that rural residents who live in suburbs have worse health than those who live in remote villages.
