In applying the measures to several nations, the study found significant variability in genuine health that correlates most closely with national income.Internationally Comparable Health Indiceshttp://www.rand.org/pubs/external_publications/EP201000165.html2010-06-01T00:00:00Z2010-06-01T00:00:00ZThis project addressed the lack of comparable health measures and indices across nations by developing a cross-national model for measuring health status..
