4-consulting were asked by NHS Health Scotland to estimate the impact on income distribution in Scotland of a broad range of policies. The research was undertaken in order to facilitate modelling of policy effects on the impact on health inequalities and health improvement through Scottish Public Health Observatory’s Informing Investment to reduce Inequalities (III) tool.
“4-Consulting combined excellent knowledge of economics and statistics with an advanced understanding of the EUROMOD microsimulation model to provide us with insights into the impact of a range of policy scenarios on the income distribution of households in Scotland. This research will help us to assess the impact that such policies have on population health and health inequalities in Scotland.”
