Dr Gang Chen is an Associate Professor and Australian Research Council (ARC) DECRA Fellow at CHE, Monash Business School, Monash University. As a health economist, his main roles within the CHE are 1) to lead the measurement and valuation of health outcomes; and 2) to provide specialist health economics expertise and advice for the design and analysis of discrete choice experiments for the quantification of stakeholder preferences for health and health care. His research areas also include health care finance, health and development, and health economic evaluation.
People differ in terms of their socio-economic position in society. Groups with high socio-economic position have more power and status, and they are fortunate to have a better health. Generally, the higher their education, occupation and income, the higher would we consider their socio-economic position/status. However, the relative importance of education, occupation and income may differ across cultures and countries. This study aimed to find out what factors you think determine a person’s socio-economic position, or their status in society. An online discrete choice experiment was adopted to understand people’s trade-offs among education, occupation and income on socio-economic position in Australia and Norway. A preference-based socio-economic position index was generated for each country.
