Hello,
I have a household health expenditure and utilisation survey data and would like to use 4 variables:
mortality, self_assessed_hs (health status), illness_4wks and chronic_illness - independently to measure health needs. My question is, which is the best method in STATA to undertake such an analysis?

The question I am trying to address is whether the distribution of health need would differ by the measure or put differently, would either of the variables explain health need better?

Thank you,
Doris
