The paper analyses income-related health inequality in Russia using empirical estimates of mean values of several health indicators and related cumulative curves and concentration indices estimates made on the RLMS-HSE 2018 data. The study has revealed that (1) the proportion of people with poor health is higher in the groups of respondents with low income; (2) having a higher education impacts on self-assessed but not on the other more objective health indicators; (3) inequality in health, measured in terms of individual income, is higher among men than among women, and, conversely, inequality in access to health services is higher among women; (4) continuous/ordered health indicators produce lower inequality values compared with dichotomized indicators. The methodology and estimates presented in the paper can be recommended as controls for health and related programs results.
