Nigel Rice is Professor of Health Economics in the Department of Economics and Related Studies and Centre for Health Economics. His current research interests focus on the determinants on health and drivers of health care demand; physical and mental health and labour market participation, productivity, and the role of disability; and early life circumstances and later life outcomes. He also has an interest in applications of microeconometric techniques, in particular approaches to modelling ordered categorical responses, panel data, and health care cost data. He has extensive experience in working with administrative data and longitudinal surveys.
Nigel has published over 90 articles in leading international peer-reviewed journals including Journal of Applied Econometrics, Oxford Bulletin of Economics and Statistics, Journal of The Royal Statistical Society (series A), Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization; together with field journals in both health and labour economics.

Nigel has extensive experience of grant funded research, including ESRC and MRC awards, and is currently co-investigator on a large programme of research within the Economics of Health and Social Care Research Unit (ESCHCRU II). ESHCRU II is the NIHR Policy Research Unit in the economics of health systems and its interface with social care. It represents a collaboration between the Centre for Health Economics (CHE) at the University of York and the Care Policy Evaluation Centre (CPEC) at The London School of Economics and Political Science. ESHCRU II aims to provide a long-term resource for policy research and a rapid response service to provide evidence for emerging policy needs. Click here for further information about ESHCRU.
