Equity and the utilization of health services : report on an eight-province survey in China.
This paper investigates equity with respect to one component of welfare in China-the provision and use of health services.
Based upon a large-scale survey of almost 16,000 individuals in eight provinces in China, we examine a sub-sample of working-age adults who have identified themselves as injured or ill during the four weeks prior to being interviewed.
We found that, beyond the level of severity of the reported condition, very few individual-level factors are related to the use of services when ill or injured.
Only gender (female) and employment in state-run enterprises are associated with higher patterns of use.
