dc.titleFuel poverty as a major determinant of perceived health: the case of France
dc.typeArticle accepté pour publication ou publié
dc.description.abstractenThe numbers of households in fuel poverty is increasing. Indeed, more and more people are struggling to heat their homes and therefore moreand more people are exposed to low temperatures which can affect their health. In this paper, we use the French database of the Healthcare and Insurance survey to study the link between a subjective measure of fuel poverty (coldness) and self-reported health. We also analyze the impact ofother individual and environmental special features on self-reported health.The estimation of a dichotomous Probit model allows us to infer a negativeimpact of fuel poverty on self-reported health. Thus, a person in fuel povertyis 2.36 percentage points more likely to report poor or fair health status thana person who is not in fuel poverty. Accordingly, it may be appropriate toimplement support for the most vulnerable categories of the health impacts of fuel poverty and cold homes, eg for chronic patients who have difficulty heating their homes.
