This data accompanies the paper Robson, O'Donnell and Van Ourti (2023), "Aversion to Health Inequality – Pure, Income-Related and Income-Caused". In the paper, we design and run an online experiment, with a representative sample of the UK population, to identify aversion to pure health inequality separately from aversion to income-related and income-caused health inequality. Here, we provide data and code. The Policy Evaluation folder contains: 1) a 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 conduct evaluate health policy. Further data and code will be uploaded on publication of our paper. Please contact us if you have any questions.
