Income and Health Inequalities and their Relationship to Population Health Delivery Systems

Overview

This Research in Progress session profiles research underway through the Systems for Action Research Program examining how multi-sector population health initiatives may influence income-related disparities in life expectancy across communities.  We use 16 years of data from the National Longitudinal Study of Public Health Systems linked with area-level estimates of income-specific life expectancy from Raj Chetty's Health Inequality Project.  The results suggest that broad-spectrum population health initiatives that engage dense networks of collaborating organizations may help to reduce income-related disparities in life expectancy.
