University of Wisconsin Center for Demography and Ecology Working Paper: “Gradual Change or Punctuated Equilibrium? Reconsidering Patterns of Health in Later-Life,” by Michal Engelman and Heide Jackson (2017-01, May 2017, .pdf format, 30p.).

Abstract:

This paper examines the curious mismatch between the supposition of gradual, continuous change embedded in common health trajectory models and a pattern of punctuated stability that is captured in the nationally-representative and widely-used Health and Retirement Study. Inspired by an insight from evolutionary biology, our analysis contrasts the conclusions drawn from mixed regression methods (growth curve models and latent class growth analysis) designed to capture trajectories in repeated-measure data with methods (multistate life tables and sequence analysis) designed to describe discrete states and transition patterns. Although a gradually increasing number of functional limitations is consistent with prevailing notions of health decline, our ndings suggest that later life functional health, as captured in survey data, is more aptly characterized as a punctuated equilibrium: long-term stability that is irregularly interrupted by changes in health status or mortality. We conclude by discussing the implications of a punctuated equilibrium model
for studies of health and aging.

Program on the Global Demography of Aging [Harvard University] Working Paper: “Health gradients in South Africa: Inequalities in the measure of the beholder,” by Carlos Riumallo-Herl,David Canning, Ryan Wagner, Chodziwaddiza Kabudula, and Mark Collinson (PGDA Working Paper No. 139, May 2017, .pdf format, 30p.).

Abstract:

As the literature on health inequalities continues to grow very few studies have tested the sensibility of this measure to the choice of welfare indicator. In this paper we use data from an aging survey in South Africa to evaluate the health gradients using two measures of economic status: consumption per capita and an asset index. In particular, we measure the concentration indexes for a variety of health indicators ranging from general health service utilization to individual self-reported and biomarker outcomes. We find that the concentration indexes for different health indicators differ across economic indicators suggesting that the choice of welfare indicator can lead to different estimations of inequalities. In line with other studies, these results advocate for greater caution when selecting the economic indicator in the analysis of inequalities and for more explicit testing of different indicators in future studies. Overall, the results call for a greater understanding of how SES can influence health to generate appropriate measurements of health inequalities.
