Household Market and Nonmarket Activities (HUS) – A Pilot Study

Economic analysis of household micro behavior, data collection for a longitudinal data base and development of statistical methods for collection and analysis of micro data are the three general purposes of the HUS-project. A pilot study was carried out in 1981/82. It was designed to compare various data collection methods, test questionnaires, give an idea of the likely response rate in a main study, help in developing coding and editing procedures and give the project staff training in the entire survey operation. The pilot study included a sample survey of 300 households which were interviewed in person and by telephone. This report gives an account of the design and the results of the pilot study.

In this book Andreas Bergh, Therese Nilsson, IFN and Lund University, and Daniel Waldenström, IFN and Paris School of Economics, France, review the latest research on the relationship between inequality and health. What does inequality mean for our health? Does increasing income inequality affect outcomes such as obesity, life expectancy and subjective well-being?
