A Poset perspective for the evaluation of self-reported health of the elderly in Italy

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroContributo a convegno

Abstract

Measuring health status is becoming a more and more relevant task, especially in relation to ageing societies. In this contribution, we first propose the use of a methodology based on the theory of Ordered Sets that allows to build synthetic indicators out of a set of ordinal variables, respecting the ordinal nature of the variables included. Secondly, using survey data, we calculate two synthetic indicators to evaluate self-rated health status of the elderly population living in Italy.
