Houston Area Health Survey: Insurance goes with better health
Houston Area Health Survey: Insurance goes with better healthPeople who have health insurance – regardless of income, education, age, and ethnic background – are significantly more likely to report being in better health, according to a new report from Rice University’s Kinder Institute for Urban Research that examined health disparities among Houstonians. Other key findings: household income, age and educational attainment beyond high school are each independently associated with better health; Hispanics and African-Americans have significantly higher odds of being in poor health; and the nature and location of neighborhoods play a critical role in the health of area residents.
