Data from many countries illustrate the paradox of women’s poorer self-rated health but greater longevity relative to men. Descriptive analysis of the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA), however, shows that women have higher self-rated health than do men. Using novel multilevel modelling this webinar will explore how social circumstances shape what may be a more artefactual than real female advantage, and suggest additions to the CLSA that might deepen understanding of self-rated health. The presenters will also discuss a second study of determinants of care-receiving and more unexpected findings around sex/gender that emerge from their novel decision tree analysis.
