Models for Durations: A Guide to Empirical Applications in Health Economics

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

This article provides an introduction to the application of duration models in applied health economics. It starts by presenting nonparametric methods for a descriptive analysis of micro-data. Next, more parametric models are presented that study the importance of both observed and unobserved determinants. Finally, the article discusses some extensions, such as multiple spells, competing risks, and dynamic treatment evaluation. Throughout the article, STATA commands for applying empirical analyses have been provided when possible.
