Eliciting health inequality aversion

Abstract

Health inequality aversion parameters can be used to represent alternative value judgements about the strength of concern for reducing health inequality versus improving total health. This project uses experimental methods to elicit these parameters from the general public and find substantial concern for reducing health inequalities. These results can be used to inform policy decision-making.
