held at the

Institute of Statistics and Mathematical Methods in Economics

Research Group Economics
organized in collaboration with the
Vienna Institute of Demography
Austrian Academy of Sciences


Progress in medical treatment and improvements in preventive health care have contributed to a significant
increase in life expectancy in most industrialized countries during the last decades. At the same time, health
care systems have come under increasing funding pressure due to the extended application of cost-intensive
medical technologies on the one hand, and population ageing on the other. In the light of these facts, a debate on
policy reforms has to address the structure of the health sector as well as its organizational efficiency. A second
set of concerns relates to the fact that health outcomes, health behaviour and the access to health care differ
across individuals. With income and wealth inequality being on the rise in many Western countries, this raises
policy issues about the role of health care systems in generating, or mitigating, health-related inequality
