Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review

  • Iryna Mazhak
Gender is a one of the most important social determinants of health inequality.
Ukrainian life expectancy gender gap is almost ten years in favor of women. Data
from the 2 - 6 rounds (N=5158) of a European Social Survey are used to show
gender differences in self-reported health (IBM SPSS 22). It was assumed that
women reported poorer health status compared with men despite of longevity.
Women estimate their health significantly lower than men do (OR 1.83; 95% CI 1.65,
2.04). For both genders, age and feeling about household’s income nowadays
were associated with increased odds for poor self-reported health.
