Social Inequalities in Self-Reported Health in Eastern European Countries: Findings from the European Social Survey

Research output: Research - peer-reviewConference abstract for conference

According to the WHO in all countries – whether low-, middle- or high-income – there are wide differences in the health status of different social groups.
The purpose of this paper is to identify the possible socio-economic inequalities in self-reported health among the population of seven Eastern European countries (Bulgaria, Czech republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine, and Russian Federation) by exploring the associations of the socio-economic determinants of health with poor self-reported health.
Data for this study is derived from the European Social Survey. Respondents from six collected rounds (from 2002 to 2012) were included in the research. The study is limited to the population from 18 to 65 years old. The multilevel binomial logistic regression analysis was conducted to investigate socio-economic differences in health. The data was analyzed using IBM SPSS 22.
The results of this research show the existence of some socio-demographic and socio-economic inequalities in self-reported health among the population of seven Eastern European countries
