The essays in this series offer fresh theoretical and methodological insights into the key issues in the field of economic inequality. The content is comprised of highly topical subject matter with key researchers in the field contributing.
Most recently, Volume 21 of Research on Economic Inequality is devoted to the topic of Health and Inequality. Interpretation of the subject is sufficiently wide to embrace analysis of inequality in health, income-related inequality in health, inequality of opportunity in health, multidimensional inequality in income and health, economic inequality as a determinant of health, and equity in the distribution of health care. The volume contains 19 chapters divided into five parts. Part I, which includes around two-fifths of the chapters, deals with methods for the measurement of health inequality, income-related health inequality and multidimensional inequality in income and health. Part II is concerned not with measurement but with development of an understanding of the determinants of health inequalities using the tools of the economist’s trade. Part III contains two analyses of inequality of opportunity in health, which is rapidly becoming one of the main outcomes examined with this approach. The fourth part of the volume contains three other empirical studies. The final part switches attention from health to health care. It includes one chapter that considers the appropriate definition of equity in the distribution of health care resources, drawing on the equality of opportunity apparatus, and another that explores how concerns for health inequality may be taken into account in analysis of the efficient allocation of health care.
This publication adopts the Emerald Publication Ethics guidelines which fully support the development of, and practical application of consistent ethical standards throughout the scholarly publishing community.
