ECO481H1F Special Topics in Economics with Data Analytics: Health and Economic Inequality

People with high incomes or high socioeconomic status not only have access to greater opportunities for consumption, leisure, education, etc, they also live substantially longer and spend their lives in better health. This course provides an interactive overview of the key themes in recent research examining health and economic inequality, paying particular attention to the bidirectional causal relationship: poor health can lead to poor economic outcomes, while economic insecurity can have serious health implications. Through reading and discussing academic papers, we investigate social and economic determinants such as income, geography, family, health care, race and gender.
