dc.description.abstractThis paper explores the determinants of individuals? psychological and psychosocial healthusing recent Health Survey for England data. We find evidence that our dependent variables,defined, respectively, from the GHQ12 and Perceived Social Support scores, are negativelyrelated to household poverty as well as acute and chronic physical health. Unemploymenthas a detrimental effect for both men and women, but this effect is mitigated for individualsresiding in high employment deprivation areas, suggesting a ?social norm? effect. Our randomeffects (household) ordered probit modelling approach finds that unobserved intra-householdcharacteristics play an important role in determining an individual?s levels of psychologicaland psychosocial health.en_US
