Health Econometrics Using Stata

Author: Partha Deb
ISBN: 1597182281
Release Date: 2017
Genre: Medical care

Health Econometrics Using Stata by Partha Deb, Edward C. Norton, and Willard G. Manning provides an excellent overview of the methods used to analyze data on healthcare expenditure and use. Aimed at researchers, graduate students, and practitioners, this book introduces readers to widely used methods, shows them how to perform these methods in Stata, and illustrates how to interpret the results. Each method is discussed in the context of an example using an extract from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey. After the overview chapters, the book provides excellent introductions to a series of topics aimed specifically at those analyzing healthcare expenditure and use data. The basic topics of linear regression, the generalized linear model, and log and Box-Cox models are covered with a tight focus on the problems presented by these data. Using this foundation, the authors cover the more advanced topics of models for continuous outcome with mass points, count models, and models for heterogeneous effects. Finally, they discuss endogeneity and how to address inference questions using data from complex surveys. The authors use their formidable experience to guide readers toward useful methods and away from less recommended ones. Their discussion of "health econometric myths" and the chapter presenting a framework for approaching health econometric estimation problems are especially useful for this aspect.

Publisher: Stata Press
ISBN: 1597180165
Release Date: 2008-12-15
Genre: Mathematics

Covering important topics omitted from basic introductions to Stata, Microeconometrics Using Statashows how to do microeconometric research using Stata. It provides the most complete and up-to-date survey of microeconometric methods available in Stata. After a brief introduction to Stata, the authors present linear regression, simulation, and generalized least squares methods. The section on cross-sectional techniques is complete with up-to-date treatments of instrumental-variables methods for linear models as well as quantile regression methods. The next section covers estimators for the parameters of linear panel-data models. The book explores standard random-effects and fixed-effects methods, along with mixed linear models used in many areas outside of econometrics. After introducing methods for nonlinear regression models, the authors discuss how to code new, nonlinear estimators in Stata. They show how to easily implement new nonlinear estimators. The authors also cover inference using analytical and bootstrap approximations to the distribution of test statistics. The book then contains a section on methods for different nonlinear models, including multinomial, selection, count-data, and nonlinear panel-data models. By combining intuitive introductions and detailed discussions of Stata examples, this bookprovides an invaluable hands-on introduction to microeconometrics.

Applied Health Economics

Author: Andrew M. Jones
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781136239816
Release Date: 2013-05-07
Genre: Business & Economics

The first edition of Applied Health Economics did an expert job of showing how the availability of large scale data sets and the rapid advancement of advanced econometric techniques can help health economists and health professionals make sense of information better than ever before. This second edition has been revised and updated throughout and includes a new chapter on the description and modelling of individual health care costs, thus broadening the book’s readership to those working on risk adjustment and health technology appraisal. The text also fully reflects the very latest advances in the health economics field and the key journal literature. Large-scale survey datasets, in particular complex survey designs such as panel data, provide a rich source of information for health economists. They offer the scope to control for individual heterogeneity and to model the dynamics of individual behaviour. However, the measures of outcome used in health economics are often qualitative or categorical. These create special problems for estimating econometric models. The dramatic growth in computing power over recent years has been accompanied by the development of methods that help to solve these problems. The purpose of this book is to provide a practical guide to the skills required to put these techniques into practice. Practical applications of the methods are illustrated using data on health from the British Health and Lifestyle Survey (HALS), the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS), the European Community Household Panel (ECHP), the US Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) and Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE). There is a strong emphasis on applied work, illustrating the use of relevant computer software with code provided for Stata. Familiarity with the basic syntax and structure of Stata is assumed. The Stata code and extracts from the statistical output are embedded directly in the main text and explained at regular intervals. The book is built around empirical case studies, rather than general theory, and the emphasis is on learning by example. It presents a detailed dissection of methods and results of some recent research papers written by the authors and their colleagues. Relevant methods are presented alongside the Stata code that can be used to implement them and the empirical results are discussed at each stage. This text brings together the theory and application of health economics and econometrics, and will be a valuable reference for applied economists and students of health economics and applied econometrics.

Analyzing Health Equity Using Household Survey Data

Author: Adam Wagstaff
Publisher: World Bank Publications
ISBN: 0821369342
Release Date: 2007-11-02
Genre: Medical

Have gaps in health outcomes between the poor and better off grown? Are they larger in one country than another? Are health sector subsidies more equally distributed in some countries than others? Are health care payments more progressive in one health care financing system than another? What are catastrophic payments and how can they be measured? How far do health care payments impoverish households? Answering questions such as these requires quantitative analysis. This in turn depends on a clear understanding of how to measure key variables in the analysis, such as health outcomes, health expenditures, need, and living standards. It also requires set quantitative methods for measuring inequality and inequity, progressivity, catastrophic expenditures, poverty impact, and so on. This book provides an overview of the key issues that arise in the measurement of health variables and living standards, outlines and explains essential tools and methods for distributional analysis, and, using worked examples, shows how these tools and methods can be applied in the health sector. The book seeks to provide the reader with both a solid grasp of the principles underpinning distributional analysis, while at the same time offering hands-on guidance on how to move from principles to practice.

"Applied Econometrics for Health Economists" introduces readers to the appropriate econometric techniques for use with different forms of survey data, known collectively as microeconometrics. The book provides a complete illustration of the steps involved in doing microeconometric research. The only study to deal with practical analysis of qualitative and categorical variables, it also emphasises applied work, illustrating the use of relevant computer software applied to large-scale survey datasets. This is a comprehensive reference guide - it contains a glossary of terms, a technical appendix, software appendix, references, and suggestions for further reading. It is concise and easy to read - technical details are avoided in the main text and key terms are highlighted. It is essential reading for health economists as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students of health economics. "Given the extensive use of individual-level survey data in health economics, it is important to understand the econometric techniques available to applied researchers. Moreover, it is just as important to be aware of their limitations and pitfalls. The purpose of this book is to introduce readers to the appropriate econometric techniques for use with different forms of survey data - known collectively as microeconometrics." - Andrew Jones, in the Preface.
