The 6th Edition will focus on econometric tools and their application for explaining spatial/geographical variations of phenomena in health economics. Examples of topics that exploit variation in data dispersed over space include (but are not limited to) choice models, competition, pay for performance, public and private insurance, providers’ incentive effects, policy reforms and evaluations, etc.
