Research Projects on Determinants of Life Expectancy by Income and Geography, and Implications for Social Security Policy
The National Bureau for Economic Research (NBER), seeks applications for research projects that deepen our understanding of the mechanisms explaining geographic variation in the relationship between income and life expectancy in the United States, by using recently released statistics from the Health Inequality Project. In this call, with funding support from the Social Security Administration through the NBER Retirement Research Center, we encourage proposals that leverage the newly released data to better understand the reasons for the strong relationship between income and life expectancy, its geographic variability, and its implications for interventions and policy.
