Health Econometrics

The focus of this research unit is on applying state-of-the-art statistical and econometric methods to applied questions with focus on health economics, insurance, public health and epidemiology. In most of our work, we combine empirical questions with theoretical contributions in terms of novel identification strategies or advances in econometric modelling.
