  • Geographic distribution of health care (GeoHealth) - Regional differences in demand and supply, costs and quality.

    The overarching aim of the project is to estimate causal effects of travel distances to health care services on utilization, costs and quality. This will help facilitate the design of efficient policy measures ensuring qualified health care personnel throughout the country and thus help endorse similar regional access to high-quality health care across the population; and to obtain novel knowledge on causes and consequences of travel distance to health care.
