Morbidity differentials among elderly in European analysis using SHARE data
Μπακόλας, Ιωάννης Κ.
This dissertation uses SHARE data (Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe) in order to examine the factors that affect morbidity among the elderly. In the first chapter reference is made to the SHARE project as well as to morbidity and factors related to it. In the second chapter variables of interest from SHARE are identified and a descriptive analysis of the main characteristics of the sample is presented. In the third chapter logistic regression models exploring associations of sociodemographic factors with different chronic diseases such as cancer, depression, chronic lung disease, arthritis etc are depicted. The last chapter includes a comparison of the different models and a summary of the main results that allows conclusions to be drawn.
