"Obtaining better knowledge of population health outcomes and determinants presents a fascinating set of challenges for an economist. These challenges range from constructing novel theoretical approaches to characterizing the relationships between determinants and outcomes, to developing innovative measurement strategies that can usefully describe population health outcomes and determinants, to amassing the data that operationalize such measures, to developing and applying econometric methodologies that tie together all these considerations and deliver evidence useful for decisionmaking."
