摘要:
 
This paper examines the relationship between health and economic status. We use mortality rates and income to be proxies for health and economic status, respectively. A Panel Smooth Transition Regression (PSTR) model has been applied to estimate the effect of income on mortality rates. Such a model allows variables to switch regimes in a smooth manner. In order to control for the cross sectional dependence, we follow Pesaran (2006) and we derive the Common correlated effects (CCE) estimator for the PSTR model. We apply Asymptotic Least Square (ALS) to deal with the unbalanced panel data. The results suggest a positive relationship between income and mortality rates for the low income group under good economic conditions, and a negative relationship for the same group under bad economic conditions. For the high income group, under good economic conditions, the rela- tionship of income and mortality rates is not significant, but under bad economic conditions, the relationship becomes positive and significant.
