Class Description:
The health of populations in developing and developed countries is very different. When crafting policies that aim to improve population health, it is crucial to know how to measure health and how to think about the health needs of the specific population in question. This course will provide an overview to the factors driving health, mortality, and aging across different populations. In addition, students will learn the best sources of data and measures to use to describe the health status of a population. Furthermore, students will be able to assess policy options that address the health of their population. At the end of the course, students will know answers to questions such as: What are the major causes of death in developed vs. developing nations? Why is life expectancy at birth often used to describe the health of a population? Will we continue to live longer or is there a limit to increases in life expectancy? And what are the implications of longer and healthier lives for the viability of social security and other public policies? Will women always live longer than men? Is socio-economic status positively correlated with health, worldwide?

Class Notes:
Global and U.S. Perspectives on Mortality and Health. The health of populations in developing and developed countries is very different. Within countries, great health disparities exist between more advantaged and more disadvantaged populations. When crafting policies that aim to improve population health, it is crucial to know how to measure health and how to think about the health needs of the specific population in question. This course will provide an overview to the factors driving health, mortality, and aging across different populations. In addition, students will learn the best sources of data and measures to use to describe the health status of a population. Furthermore, students will be able to assess policy options that address the health of their population. This course fulfills concentration requirements for the University-wide graduate minor in population studies and HHH's Social Policy, Advanced Policy Analysis, Global Policy concentrations. The instructor will be Professor Audrey Dorelien. You may contact her at dorelien@umn.edu if you have questions. See Course Info for a draft syllabus. http://classinfo.umn.edu/?dorelien+PA8390+Fall2015
