Comment from the Stata technical group

The study of health equity has been increasingly popular over the past 25 years, evidenced in the threefold increase of Medline-published topics. The authors thoroughly cover the important concepts of biostatistics, economics, and survey statistics—three areas in which Stata excels—and how to use Stata to implement the analysis.

Part I of the three-part text mainly covers how to measure health outcomes. Topics include estimating standardized mortality rates (infant and child), constructing and interpreting anthropometric indicators, measuring self-reported adult health in relation to socioeconomic status, measuring the standard of living, and adjusting these estimates and measures for survey data. Part II outlines the possible analyses when presenting results on health equity, including analysis using concentration curves, concentration indices, and their extensions; and analysis decomposing health inequities into their underlying inequalities. For instance, child survival inequalities likely reflect inequalities in education, health insurance, and health-care access, among others. Part III covers analyzing equity in health care utilization and health care spending using the techniques described in Part II.
