Inequity in the face of death

Inequity in the face of death

We apply the theory of inequality in opportunity to measure inequity in mortality. Our
empirical work is based on a rich dataset for the Netherlands (1998-2007), linking information
about mortality, health events and lifestyles. We show that distinguishing between di¤erent
channels via which mortality is a¤ected is necessary to test the sensitivity of the results with
respect to di¤erent normative positions. Moreover, our model allows for a comparison of the
inequity in simulated counterfactual situations, including an evaluation of policy measures.
We explicitly make a distinction between inequity in mortality risks and inequity in mortality
outcomes. The treatment of this di¤erence - “luck”- has a crucial in‡uence on the results.
