Economic Growth and Health : a Comparative Study of the EU Countries
The purpose of the presented study is the analysis of relations that occur between the economic development level of national economies and the health condition of the societies. Attention focuses on the existing dependences in this area, the ones observed in the European Union member states. An attempt was made to identify the differences that occur in this area on the level of the economies of the so-called "old" and "new" European Union. The research is based on the data available on the level of NUTS 1 that describes the health condition of society in individual states. Due to the assumed scope of the analysis, indices that define life expectancy (LE) and predicted healthy life years (HLY) were accepted as the dependent variables. The results presented point to separate patterns of dependences in individual groups of the member states. (original abstract)
