Abstract

The paper examines the association between marital status and self-reported health status of Indian men and women of different ages. Estimation results reveal linkages between marital status and health and show that this relationship is sensitive to the age and gender. Based on findings, the paper argues that a specific marital status in a particular stage of life could be an important target group for health policy intervention.
