Term paper and grading

The seminar will cover a variety of topics in empirical health economics and health policy, for instance, socio-economic status and health, education and health, and health policy.

The goal of this seminar is to give an overview of interesting research questions in health economics. The students should be enabled to understand basic concepts in health economics and microeconometric methods, and to utilize recent results for their own applied work.

Details of the course will be discussed and a short lecture will be given during the introductory meeting on Tuesday (6.11. 10.00-11.00am, Max Planck Institute for Social Policy, Amalienstr. 33, 3rd floor). The seminar will be held in English. The seminar will be on Monday (17.12.), Max Planck Institute.

The seminar paper must be substantially your own work. It must be written in English. Submission is online via email in pdf-format.

Please do not simply copy the paper but present it in your own way, explaining the important concepts in own words. This will be a major part of your task. When you copy results or tables from other studies, try to focus on the main information, which is relevant for your argument. Do not simply copy and/or discuss all results. For more details see the Guidelines above.
