Impact of Subnational Political Regimes on Population Health: Regression Analysis by the Example of the Russian Regions
This paper aims to investigate the impact of political regimes on population health on the intra-national level. Using data of Russian regions, it was found that the effect of regional regimes is heterogeneous and has the indirect influence. The key mediator is the administrative barriers, which change the direction of the political regime impact. Thus, it was shown that the high level of administrative barriers has a positive effect of democracy on population health, while the low level of the barriers has the opposite negative effect.
