''Risk factors associated to the COVID-19: comparisons between France and Luxembourg''
( 2024, Vol. 44 No.1 )
This paper proposes a study of risk factors in France and Luxemourg associated to the propagation of the COVID-19. The analysis relies on data from wave 8 of the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe, covering France and Luxembourg. The methodology relies on achievement curves stemming from a multidimensional socio-economic health inequality index (Gini) measured across multiple items reflecting physical and mental health. In Luxembourg, the non respect of the preventive hygiene measures (mask, hydroalcoholic gel and coughs) contributes to increase the level of socio-economic health inequalities in the country. However, in France, the role of the preventive hygiene measures cannot be assessed.
Keywords: achievement curves, COVD-19, health, risk factors, socio-economic inequalities, SHARE
