Project description

This research proposal aims (1) to reveal and explain cohort changes in the education gradient in health among women (in the context of the massive growth in female enrollment rates), (2) to explain cohort changes in the gender gap in health at the different levels of the educational structure (in the context of the reversed gender gap in higher education).
