Economics of interventions in early childhood


Contact: Richard Mattock

 
The thesis will attempt to determine appropriate methods to be used in economic evaluations conducted for interventions aimed at children in the early years of development (ages 0-5). The introductory sections will discuss methodological issues based on the unique features of childhood and development. These methods will then be used to inform 1-3 applied economic evaluations for specific interventions. The discussion will focus on how these economic evaluations can be used to inform policy, an assessment of the methodology used, and areas of research that need to be developed in the future.
