Doctoral Dissertation Research in Economics: Essays on the determinants of healthcare differences in US hospitals

Healthcare differences are pervasive in United States hospitals. This proposal aims to understand why patients with the same underlying health conditions receive different treatments, incur different costs, and experience different outcomes. There are conceivably many factors that affect patient care, but one factor may be the quality of the patient's attending physician, and another factor may be the patient's health insurance category.

CAREER: Health Determinants and Research Design

What determines human health is known only in part. Even where causal pathways have been identified, great uncertainty frequently exists regarding the strength of the relationship. Compelling and precise estimates of these relationships are needed to inform public policies that will improve population health. This project would improve understanding of these relationships, using natural and quasi-experiments.

The broad goal of this project is improve services research and intervention, particularly for people who are homeless and mentally ill, through the use of latent group-trajectory analytic approaches. As an R34 Exploratory Development project, the study has two specific purposes. One is to examine the utility of latent group-trajectory analysis for improving services research for people who are homeless and mentally ill. The other is to compare two techniques for such analyses to understand how each may be best used in the context of services research.

DHB: Decentralization and Local Public Goods: How Does Allocation of Decision-Making Authority Affect Provision?

Access to services such as sanitation, health care and education remains inadequate for much of the world's population. As much as 20 percent of the world's population lack safe drinking water and sanitation. The objective of this study is to determine under what conditions decentralization of decision-making authority improves access to services. The project focuses on safe drinking water, though the analysis applies to all services and more broadly to other types of organizations. Decentralization and its benefits have been popular topics in academic and policy literatures.
