Responsibility-Sensitive Welfare Weights for Health

Published: 3 July 2024| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/6wdpxx2hfp.1


This data accompanies the paper Robson, O'Donnell and Van Ourti (2024), "Responsibility-Sensitive Welfare Weights for Health". In the paper, we design and run an online experiment, with a sample of the UK adult population, to estimate responsibility-sensitive welfare weights for health that facilitate inequality-and inequity-sensitive policy evaluation. Here, we provide data and code. The Welfare Weights folder contains: 1) an RData file, which includes the estimated preference parameters, and 2) an R script file, which includes a function that allows others to use our estimated preference parameters to estimate Social Marginal Welfare Weights, which can be used in health policy evaluation. Further data and code will be uploaded on publication of our paper. Please contact us if you have any questions.
