The Health, Econometrics and Data Group (HEDG) is a new initiative at the University of York, involving collaboration between the Centre for Health Economics (CHE) and the Department of Economics and Related Studies (DERS). The aim of HEDG is to provide expertise in the development and application of state-of-the-art quantitative research methods capable of informing health policy through empirical evidence. Much of the work of HEDG is undertaken in the Alcuin Research Resource Centre (ARRC) which houses specialist computing resources for computationally intensive research methods.
HEDG has a dedicated seminar programme and a working paper series. The group is also linked to an international network of researchers, including the annual European Workshops on Econometrics and Health Economics.
