The utilized Econometrics organization has dedicated to the subject symposia in under 3 years (Lyons, February 1983; Rotterdam, December 1985), with out experiencing any problems in getting worthy papers: on econometrics of dangers and health insurance, at the size of well-being prestige and of potency of scientific suggestions, on common types permitting simulation. those have been the subjects for the second one assembly, yet different features of medical-economic difficulties had offered themselves already to the analyst: clinical determination making and its effects, the behaviour of the actors - sufferers and physicians -, local medicometrics and what no longer: a few of them were lined by means of the 1st assembly. ultimately, in July 1988 happened in Lyons the Fourth foreign convention on process technological know-how in healthiness Care; it's going to no longer be spectacular .

The correlation of the reduced form disturbance terms as a result of the latter substitution does not affect the discussion about the interpretation of the MIMIS-HSI in the previous section.

The other two health factors show the expected positive impact on utilization almost everywhere. As was the case for adults, HSTA T seems to contain information about the children's health that is not contained in the four health factors included in the regression. With the exception of HOSPERVS, HSTA T is significantly positively related to all forms of health care utilization. , HSTA T contains information not included in the other health variables. Given the large amount of other health information contained in the health factors included (especially for children), these results are surprising.
