Econometrics

PRICELESS SA has an active econometrics team.

Economic models play an important a role in analysing health systems, explaining how various factors affect health outcomes, and forecasting future impacts on population health.

For example, the mathematical modelling to show the impact of a tax on sugar sweetened beverage (SSB) consumption must be able not only to show a decrease in consumption of SSBs but also the future health impacts and benefits, as well as broader changes in industry and consumer behaviour.

Some ongoing projects

  • Evaluating the SSB tax in South Africa
  • Evaluating the Ideal Clinic Intervention in South Africa
