Analyzing the Evolution of the Health Status of Romanian People with Sah Data from 1990 to 2010

Abstract: In the present paper we analyze the perception of the Romanians concerning their own health status. The research used only SAH data (self assessed health data) obtained from 13 national representative samples designated between 1990 and 2010. To evaluate the progress regarding the population’s opinions about their status of health we used the indicators IOV, POA, IGO and the stochastic dominance relation. These indices evaluate the degree of variation (concentration), the polarization, the inequality and respectively the evolution aspects for the distributions of the ordinal variables. Concerning the health status we made comparisons between the rural and urban communities. After the application of the four mentioned indicators we deduce in all cases that the rural districts are not privileged from the health point of view.

Keywords: SAH data, polarization, concentration, variation, inequality, progress.
