Impact of medical insurance on household consumption of farmers and herdsmen from the perspective of targeted poverty alleviation: based on household questionnaire survey data of 730 farmers and herdsmen in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region
Chinese Rural Economy,2020,No. 02
Household consumption is an important indicator that reflects the poverty level and quality of life of farmers and herdsmen. They are influenced by a combination of factors, with medical insurance and poverty status being two important factors. On the foundation of summarizing the characteristics of poor and non-poor households, this paper used a limited information maximum likelihood estimation method to construct an econometric model and empirically analyzed the influence of medical insurance on the consumption of different farmers and herdsmen. The results showed that poverty restrained the medical consumption and food consumption of farmers and herdsmen, while medical insurance significantly improved the consumption confidence of farmers and herdsmen, stimulating their consumption and significantly improving the level of medical services received and quality of life. In the meantime, medical insurance had significant differences in their impact on the consumption expenditure for different types of farmers and herdsmen. The participation in medical insurance had a significant promoting effect on the medical consumption expenditure, the consumption expenditure of purchased food and other expenditures of poor households, It also has a significant impact on the promotion of material consumption expenditure of non-poor households.
Can the purchase of social insurance improve the subjective well-being of migrant workers: an empirical analysis based on life satisfaction of 2942 migrant workers in Shanghai
Chinese Rural Economy,2020,No. 02
This study used 2942 sample data of migrant workers from the dynamic monitoring survey of migrant workers’ citizenization process of the survey office of the National Bureau of Statistics in Shanghai from 2016 to 2018, and used the ordered Probit model to empirically study the impact of social insurance on migrant workers’ subjective well-being. Studies have shown that purchasing social insurance can significantly improve the subjective well-being of migrant workers, and the more types of social insurance purchased, the higher the subjective well-being is. Migrant workers who purchase social insurance have a 21.70% higher subjective well-being than migrant workers who do not purchase social insurance. For each additional type of social insurance, their subjective well-being increases by 6.10%. The five types of social insurance can significantly improve the subjective well-being of migrant workers. Among them, the purchase of medical insurance has the highest marginal effect, followed by pension insurance, and the lowest is work-related injury insurance. Through the propensity score matching method and sub-sample analysis, it is found that the regression results of the original model have good robustness. Finally, based on the conclusions of the study, policy suggestions are proposed to further improve the subjective well-being of the migrant workers.
