Abstract

En este artículo se establecen y evalúan los factores determinantes del estado de salud de los colombianos a partir de los datos obtenidos en la Encuesta Nacional de Calidad de Vida, realizada por el DANE en el año 2003. Para el análisis de la información se utiliza un modelo de respuesta múltiple ordenado. Los resultados confirman las predicciones del modelo estándar de demanda por salud para Colombia en el 2003 pero además se avanza en la mejor descripción de la inequidad en los regímenes de seguridad en salud.
