University of Oxford (HERC): Inequality in health and health care: theoretical and empirical considerations
November 15 - November 17
This short online course will cover theoretical concepts on inequity and inequality in health as well as its measurement. It will also provide an overview of selected available (longitudinal) household survey data and cohort studies that combine socio-economic and demographic variables along with various health measures – these datasets provide good sources for empirical inequality in health research. Overall, the course will combine theory and applied methods using case studies, real-word evidence, and data analysis using Stata. This course is aimed at researchers and analysts interested in the measurement of socio-economic inequality in health, including (but not limited to) Ph.D. students, post-doctoral researchers and third sector organizations.
This is an entry and intermediate-level course so no strong prior knowledge in economics or inequalities research is assumed.
