|Adam Wagstaff, March 30, 1999
The program featured Adam Wagstaff’s presentation of initial findings from his study of nine developing countries, based primarily on data from large-scale household surveys sponsored by the World Bank-supported Living Standards Measurement Study (LSMS) Program. The presentation and discussion covered four topics: the suitability of LSMS data for the study of health inequalities; estimates of intra-country inequalities in under-five mortality derived from the LSMS data; cross-country comparisons of the estimated inequalities; and the potential for reducing inequalities through different types of policy intervention.
(The initial three topics covered in the seminar presentation appeared in a subsequently-published article, Socioeconomic Inequalities in Child Mortality: Comparisons across Nine Developing Countries.)
