Health, Econometrics and Data Group

  • Start date: 01 January 2009
  • End date: 30 June 2013

This Large Grant award provides funding for a programme of research to support and develop the activities of the Health, Econometrics and Data Group (HEDG). HEDG is a collaboration, focused on methodological and applied research in health economics, between the Centre for Health Economics and the Department of Economics based at the University of York.  

During the four year period of the award a programme of research organised under the following three broad themes will be pursued: the performance of health systems and organisations, inequality in opportunity in health, the evaluation of public health interventions through econometric methods and micro-simulation. The themes cover subjects of central concern to research and policy analysis both nationally and internationally while offering the opportunity to exploit and develop innovative research methods. A number of research questions will be pursued under each theme. 

The research themes will be complemented by a programme of training courses aimed directly at responding to the needs of early and mid-career researchers. On an annual basis, the programme will offer both an introduction and an advanced course in applied health economics.
