ABSTRACT

This study analyzes multi-dimensional determinants for health inequality, which is defined as difference between individuals in health. Unlike the existing model on health inequality, a highly integrative model was developed including more variables and factors. We divided health status into physical status and physical function, which were classified into the four sub-categories and eight variables. The independent variables for the model include structural factor, psychological factor, behavioral factor, and relational factor. The results show that age, income, education, stress and happiness are critical factors for health. It is found that structural factor influences all aspects of health status whereas psychological factor has a significant impact only on emotional aspect of health.
