Abstract

The relationship between education and health has been examined by many studies. The purpose of this report is to use Logit model to examine the gradient of education on health, focusing on the difference between males and females using a cross-sectional CCHS data set collected by Statistic Canada. The Logit model tests the gradients of education on four health behaviors, as well as on five health outcomes. Results show that education has significant effect on most health behaviors and health outcomes. In most cases, the difference in the education-health gradient for men is significantly less steep than women.
