Incidence of illness among resource-poor households: Evidence from five locations in India

Description: 

This study examines the association between household attributes and perceived morbidity within resource-poor house holds (HHs) in India at five locations. This presents an innovation compared to most epidemiological studies, which focus on associations between the incidence of an illness and characteristics of the ill person. The findings showed that attributes of the unit household, including type of house, income, education and size, have significant effects on IIH, variability in IIH cannot solely be explained by age and gender of HH members.
