  1. Differences in self-reported morbidity by material status and by living arrangement.

    Article - En anglais

    It has frequently been shown that the never married, divorced and widowed have higher rates of self-reported morbidity than married people.

    The purpose of this study was to assess to what extent morbidity differences by marital status can be explained by differences in living arrangement (i.e. living with a partner or not).

    If living arrangement plays a major role, one expects to find that: 1.people who live with a partner have lower morbidity rates than those who live alone; 2.morbidity differences by marital status decrease substantially after controlling for living arrangement.

    Data from the GLOBE study, a large prospective cohort in the Netherlands, on 18 973 people from Eindhoven and its surroundings, aged 15-74, were used to test the hypotheses.
