Summer Training School ‘Research on health inequalities using longitudinal demographic data’ (Lund University)

In collaboration with the European Society for Historical Demography, the COST-Action Great Leap organises a summer training school on ‘Research on health inequalities using longitudinal demographic data’. It equips students with theories, sources and methods for analyzing inequalities in health. The course provides hands-on workshops in data management of longitudinal micro-level data, event-history analysis, and analysis of causes of death. In addition, a large part of the summer school is devoted to a team project.

Students interested in joining this Training School are expected to be familiar with demographic and quantitative methods, historical micro-level data, and have at least intermediate level econometrics. Applicants should be enrolled in a PhD program, have recently received their PhD, or be enrolled in a MSc program.
