|Title||Gender differentials in health: A differences-in-decompositions estimate|
We analyse changes in gendered health differentials between 2005 and 2014, using data from population-weighted General Household Surveys (GHS) in South Africa. We also assess the contribution of observed characteristics in explaining those differentials. We find that the gender gap in health narrowed by approximately 2 percent between 2005 and 2014, and the narrowing of that gap can be mainly attributed to changes in educational attainment and social grant receipt.
