ABSTRACT

This study uses the Andersen Model of Health Service Utilization to analyze factors that affect poverty among households with older women who have disabilities. The major findings based on the analysis are as follows.First, in terms of predisposing characteristics, the probability of poverty increased when the subjects had fewer years of education, mild disability, sensory, mental, and internal physical disabilities, and no spouse. Second, in terms of enabling resources, the probability of poverty became higher when older women with disabilities did not own their place of residence, and the household members’ participation rate in economic activity was lower. Third, perceived needs were found to have an insignificant effect on poverty among older women with disabilities. Policy measures are presented based on these findings.
