Access to health services in urban and rural areas of Brazil

Access to health services in urban and rural areas of Brazil

Revista de Economia e Sociologia Rural 43(1): 29-44

The determinants of the demand for health services are analysed in the urban and rural areas of Brazil, based on a 1998 household survey. The variable 'health status' of each individual was estimated as a function of the household's infrastructure, individual characteristics, family income, etc., and the estimates were used as an explanatory variable in the demand for health services, to avoid endogeneity problems.
