We have modelled the age eﬀect. More precisely, we consider only a linear age term although it is well known that age possesses a convex relationship with respect to health care demand. The latter implies that the number of physician consultations and hospital days ﬁrst decreases and then increases with age. Nevertheless, the total eﬀect of age on each component of health care demand has the expected positive sign and is statistically signiﬁcant for both GP and specialist consultations. Doing sports has a positive eﬀect on the stock of health capital.
Equations suggest the possibility of a non-linear eﬀect of age. The coeﬃcients on H suggest that, contrary to R\ what is assumed in Grossman’s model, individuals do not adjust instantaneously to their desired health stocks. The results suggest, unsurprisingly, that the elderly adjust more slowly to their desired stocks than do the young. Turning to the investment equation, the results suggest that in both samples 9 , but surprisingly the implied value of is smaller for the over-41s than for the under41s.
Therefore, it seems sensible not to determine the coeﬃcient on ln H on a priori grounds. 12c) . THE FULL EMPIRICAL MODEL Since it is neither directly observable nor measurable, we have chosen to model the stock of health capital as a latent variable. , the quality of the environment. Due to the availability of only limited information on this variable, it enters our empirical model as a latent variable, too. Thus, the structural model outlined above contains two latent variables. While health capital is determined endogenously, environmental pollution is treated as a latent exogenous variable which reﬂects its role as a potential determinant of health.
