In recent years, health econometrics have been playing an important role in supporting health and social care policy decisions. The Health Econometrics Workshop aims to bring together economists, econometricians, regional scientists, and geographers to discuss the use of statistical and econometric methods to address issues in the field of health economics. The 3rd Edition of this Workshop will focus on econometric tools and their application for explaining spatial/geographical variations of phenomena in health economics. Theoretical and empirical contributions aimed at understanding the role of geography in health economics are also welcome.
