The American Health Economy Illustrated Online

 

The American Health Economy Illustrated Online is a free, web-based resource for instructors, policymakers, journalists, and members of the informed public interested in better understanding the foundational elements of the American health economy.

The website serves as a one-stop shop for primers, presentations, and raw data describing current trends and timely topics — from health and poverty to the government’s role in health care to value in health care and international comparisons. The website was developed by Christopher Conover of Duke University and AEI, in cooperation with AEI, Duke University, and the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management. Its useful tools include the following:

Downloadable PDFs of individual book chapters:
With 20 independent chapters on the health economy, viewers can access as much or as little content as they want. Viewers can scan the topics and choose only the ones relevant to research, then read them online, download them, print them for a group, or share them electronically with others.

Editable PowerPoint slides:
The site's content is perfect for presentations, building a lecture, or inserting into web-based writing. Just download and insert specific slides into your deck. You can download a PowerPoint version of each chart exactly as it appears in the book or an editable version you can adapt to fit your presentation’s style (see graph 5.1b below as an example).

Downloadable Excel files:
Download the primary, intermediate, and final data sets used to produce each topic’s figures (see the image below as an example). These provide complete documentation of methods and sources used for the more than 200 charts appearing in the book. Take advantage of the compilation for your own research or journalistic purposes — or use it as a resource for student projects.
