Abstract Poor mental health is strongly associated with disability acquisition. Social capital and healthier lifestyles pre-disability onset may help promote mental health resilience (i.e. a state of seemingly being unaffected by the event), or the capacity to ‘bounce back’, post-acquisition. This paper used a novel methodology (discrete trajectory mixture models) to examine discrete trajectories in mental health before and after disability acquisition in the Household Income Labour Dynamics in ...

Abstract Underemployment and overemployment are widespread in developed countries and have detrimental consequences on health. This article tackles the question of the relationship between health and own, spousal and cross working time mismatches in bi-active couples. Using 83,000 observations from the German SOEP (1997–2012) I demonstrate that selfassessed health is reduced in case of overemployment and underemployment. I find that living with an overemployed partner is negatively correlated wi...

In this paper, I assess whether disparities in healthcare utilization decreased in conjunction with educational expansion among women of reproductive age in Ethiopia.

Abstract Rationale Poor subjective physical health and loneliness are among the most detrimental ramifications of trauma. Indeed, substantial research has examined the link between subjective physical health and loneliness, mainly focusing on how loneliness leads to poorer physical health. However, the effects of poor subjective physical health on loneliness, as well as the reciprocal effects of these two factors, have scarcely been examined. Even less is known regarding the course of these mutu...

Abstract Evidence is limited and mixed as to how improved price transparency affects patients' demand for healthcare. Price transparency usually affects both the supply and the demand side of healthcare. However, in Japan—where healthcare providers cannot compete on prices—we can examine an independent impact of price transparency on patients’ demand for healthcare. The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of improved price transparency on patients’ demand for healthcare. We conducted ...
