The gender gap in self-rated health and education in Spain. A multilevel analysis.

07:00 EST 7th December 2017 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "The gender gap in self-rated health and education in Spain. A multilevel analysis."

Women tend to report poorer self-rated health than men. It is also well established that education has a positive effect on health. However, the issue of how the benefits of education on health differ between men and women has not received enough attention and the few existing studies which do focus on the subject do not draw a clear conclusion. Therefore, this study aims to analyse whether the positive influence of educational attainment on health is higher for women and whether education helps to overcome the gender gap in self-rated health.
