This course is open to research master students, PhD students, Postdocs and researchers with an interest in a quantitative approach to health inequality. Students should have done an intermediate course in statistics, be familiar with regression analysis and preferably have completed an intermediate course in microeconomics.

Those with a public health background who have not previously followed a course in economics should be comfortable with quantitative analysis and be competent in basic calculus. Familiarity with the statistical package STATA is an advantage.

The course is taught in English.
