A Survey of Recent Research in Health Economics
NBER Working Paper No. 129
In this survey of recent research in health economics, I concentrate on studies that have appeared since 1971 or are in progress. The survey reflects in part my own research interests and biases and is not meant to be comprehensive. Four topics are covered: (1) demand for adults' health and medical care; (2) effects of health on labor supply and wage rates; (3) demand for children's health and medical care and (4) selected topics pertaining to the supply side of the medical care market.
