Health and inequality across the life cycle: employment and behavioural pathways

September 26 & 27, 2012 in Rotterdam

The socioeconomic gradient in health has been described by some as one of the most intriguing questions for the social sciences. While its universal existence is well known, less is known about the relative roles played by various potential mechanisms in causing it. During this workshop we bring together some recent work that has addressed either the linkage through work decisions or through lifestyle and behavioural decisions. Some of the work presented derives directly from the Netspar Research Theme “ Income, health, work and care across the life cycle” coordinated by Maarten Lindeboom (VU) and Eddy van Doorslaer (EUR).

Abstracts and/or papers are made available on the Netspar website as soon as the programme is finalized.
