Luy, Marc: Can we explain and disenchant the “gender-and-health-paradox”?

 

[Link to programme]

 

Abstract: From the 1960s to the 1980s a common wisdom about differences between males and females in health and mortality emerged which was summarized by the well-known phrase “women get sicker, but men die quicker”. Recently this wisdom has been increasingly questioned. Nonetheless, the general idea of a paradoxical relationship between health and mortality among women and men persists until today. The presented research aims at advancing the understanding of this paradox by demonstrating that the reverse relationship between sex on the one side and health and mortality on the other is not as paradoxical as it seems. Our findings indicate that the phenomenon can be explained by three factors. First, the reversal in sex morbidity and sex mortality differentials is not universal. It occurs primarily with regard to longstanding illnesses which are not closely associated with the risk of dying. Second, this disadvantage of women is mostly a direct consequence of their advantage in longevity. Thus, women suffer more from longstanding illnesses than men not in spite of living longer, but because they live longer. These factors have not been connected with the gender-and-health-paradox so far and combine this phenomenon with the ongoing “compression versus expansion of morbidity” debate. Finally, the remaining disadvantages of women in healthy life years are eliminated when gender differences in health reporting are adjusted for.

Luy, Marc: The Longitudinal Survival Method for estimating life expectancy for subpopulations from survey data with mortality follow-up

 

Abstract: Estimation of life expectancy for specific subpopulations is a common problem for demographers because population statistics often do not include the required data on deaths and the population at risk. To overcome this problem we developed a simple demographic approach to derive life tables from survey data with mortality follow-up. We refer to the method as “Longitudinal Survival Method” (LSM) because it is based on longitudinal survival experiences of survey respondents which are transformed into a period life table. The specific strengths of the LSM include the low demand on the data, the easy applicability and the estimation of age-specific probabilities of dying. Moreover, the LSM allows estimations even for very small subpopulations. The only necessary assumption is that the relationship between cohort and period survival prevalent in the entire population applies to each subpopulation. We demonstrate the functionality of the LSM through application to the German Life Expectancy Survey.
