  • Description

With a focus on practical applications and examples, this book contains four main sections: Section I defines the social determinants of health at a place/population level and discusses their significance in light of current methodological limitations in identifying their impacts; Section II focuses on conceptual and empirical applications of ABM to analyze the social determinants of health; Section III focuses on conceptual and empirical applications of MSM to simulate, and thus, increase our understanding of the impacts of the social determinants of health; and Section IV addresses future directions for empirical research using ABM and MSM, including convergence of aspects of both ABM and MSM into the same analyses, and also casts light on the potential policy implications of findings of these more complex and integrative models.  Topical coverage includes: the social determinants of health; current concepts and methods for ABM of the social determinants of health; empirical evidence using ABM in the social sciences; empirical evidence using ABM in social epidemiology and public health; MSM of the social determinants of health; empirical evidence using MSM in the social sciences; empirical evidence using MSM in social epidemiology and public health; future directions and conclusions.
