Project title Queensland Family Cohort Study – Analyses of health, health care utilisation and socio-economic inequalities
Duration  10 weeks
Description

This project will provide descriptive data analyses of health and health care utilisation among Queensland Families, using the pilot data from the Queensland Family Cohort Study. In collaboration with the Study team from Mater Research Institute-UQ and QUT, the project will help to identify immediate and future health requirements of the Queensland population.  The project will have a significant impact on health policy and practice and define preventative interventions required for the health of future generations of Australians.

Expected outcomes & deliverables Scholars will be expected to analyse the data. They will be placed at the Centre for the Business and Economics of Health under the guidance of Professor Brenda Gannon and a post-doctorate researcher in health economics/econometrics.
