The Institute of Government and Public Affairs of the University of Illinois/The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago Call for Papers: “New Perspectives on Health and Health Care Policy,” a conference to be held  Mar. 22-23, 2010 in Chicago, Illinois.

Submission Deadline: November 1, 2009

We invite scholars who are engaged all areas of health and health policy research to submit their work, though we are especially interested in topics that are under-researched or that present new ways to think about a particular problem. A few examples of priority research areas are:

A.  Cost shifting: What are the mechanisms by which hospitals shift costs between payers and what evidence is there to support claims that the uninsured impose significant costs on private payers?

B. Prevention and primary care: What procedures and treatments are truly preventive and cost-effective, and does primary care deliver such treatment? Is primary care a substitute or complement with specialty and tertiary care?

C. Insurance markets and competition: Is the health insurance market competitive? What effects would a so-called ‘public option’have on the private market? What effects would insurance market reform have on the long-term trajectory of health insurance costs and coverage?

D. Early determinants of adult health: What is the relative importance of cognitive factors, non-cognitive factors and early health to adult health?

E.  Medical technology and research: What effect will comparative effectiveness research and electronic medical records have on the quality and cost of health care, and health?

The conference will include a panel discussion on the current state of health care policy that features David Cutler, Otto Eckstein Professor of Applied Economics in the Department of Economics and Kennedy School of Government; and Mark Pauly, Bendheim Professor and Professor of Health Care Systems, Business and Public Policy, Insurance and Risk Management, and Economics at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania Selection Process: Approximately 8-10 papers will be selected. The organizing committee will give priority to original research with direct public policy application. Participants will be selected on the basis of papers or extended abstracts of approximately 500 words. The conference will take place at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and will run from roughly 1pm on March 22 to 2pm on March 23. The conference will pay travel and lodging expenses for one author of each paper.

Submission Deadline: November 1, 2009

Call for Papers: Research on Connections between Health and SES Using PSID Data
Panel Study of Income Dynamics
Survey Research Center, Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan

DEADLINE: October 16, 2009

Purpose:

The Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID), with support from the National Institute on Aging, announces a call for papers using PSID data to conduct research on the connection between health and socioeconomic status within and across generations. Between 10-20 papers will be presented at a conference to be held in Ann Arbor, MI in September 2010. Support for travel and lodging will be provided to one author per paper.

Background:

The PSID has followed the same families and their descendents since 1968, for 36 waves as of 2009, making it one of the premier datasets for generational analysis. When study participants leave a family to start their own household, such as when adult children move out on their own, the new family unit is added to the Core Panel and interviewed. Children born to or adopted by sample members become part of the study population and are followed over their lives. This practical sample design supports both
intra-generational and inter-generational life course models. For example, there are many thousands of unique sibling pairs in the core PSID and 925 in the Child Development Supplement (CDS) alone. In 2007, about 4,300 ‘Heads/Wives’ had a sibling who was also a ‘Head/Wife’ in 2007. Moreover, there are currently ample data on up to three generations of the same family, allowing the analysis of child-parent models, parent-grandparent models, and child-grandparent models. For example, in the 2007 wave, there are about 4,500 ‘Heads/Wives’ who have parents who are also ‘Heads/Wives’, more than 1,100 ‘Heads/Wives'; who have grandparents also ‘Heads/Wives’, and about 1,000 ‘Heads/Wives’ who have both parents and grandparents who are also ‘Heads/Wives.’ The information collected on socioeconomic status and health is substantial. Extensive information on income, education, and employment has been collected in most waves since the survey began in 1968. A supplement in 1986 included substantial information on health which was expanded and included in every wave starting in 1999. A summary of the health data in the PSID is available at the PSID website:

psidonline.isr.umich.edu…

Goals of Conference:

The goals of the conference are to bring together scholars in the area of health and SES to generate additional scientific and policy-relevant findings, facilitate future collaborations including NIH proposal submissions, and provide feedback to PSID about possible needs for content changes and/or future data collections.

Papers will be considered for publication in a refereed special issue of the B. E. Journal of Economic Analysis & Policy. More information about the journal can be found
at:

www.bepress.com…

Listed below are some examples of topics, intended for illustrative purposes. This is not a comprehensive list of possible topics.

* Establish the differences in the relationships between health and socioeconomic status among adult siblings – and between parents and adult children – across the life course, and elucidate the various mechanisms accounting for these relationships;
* Estimate models of transmission in education, economic status, and health status across two and three generations, including an examination of endogenous family structure;
* Examine generational differences in factors affecting the retirement decision, including socioeconomic and health factors;
* Examine the transitions and/or spells in health insurance coverage and their relationship to other transitions;
* Examine the effects of events early in the life course on later-life outcomes;
* Investigate the role of neighborhood factors on health.
Authors will be expected to present papers at a two-day conference in Ann Arbor, MI in September, 2010. All travel and lodging expenses for one author will be provided.

Selection Criteria:

Applications will be evaluated by senior scholars affiliated with the PSID. Abstracts will be evaluated based upon several factors, including:

* The thematic relevance of the research;
* The quality of study design, including the choice of appropriate research methodology and data;
* The significance of the analyses in terms of extending scientific knowledge.

Application Instructions:

Applicants should provide the following:

1. A coversheet with:

* The title of the proposed research;
* The investigators’ name and institutional affiliation with mailing address, email address, phone and fax numbers;
* If the research involves more than one investigator, a principal investigator (PI) must be identified. All correspondence will be with the PI.

2. An extended abstract (2-4 pages) which should include a description of the topic to be studied, the theoretical focus, and the data and research methods.

3. Curriculum vitae for all investigators.

Timeline and important dates:

a. Application deadline
October 16, 2009

b. Notification of award
November 20, 2009

c. Draft paper due

Two weeks prior to two-day conference in September 2010

d. Present paper at two-day workshop in Ann Arbor
September 2010
