The reduction of health inequalities is one of the most common policy aims of health systems worldwide. Economists have responded to this challenge by developing empirical methods that provide useful ways to quantify the degree of inequality in the distribution of measures of health, to compare health inequalities across space and time, to identify the factors that drive health inequalities and to simulate the effects on health inequalities of alternative policy scenarios. This paper offers a concise review of the most recent and relevant methods in this fast growing area of research, pointing the reader to both seminal work and interesting empirical applications.
