Enhancing economic models for the analysis of animal disease
|Author(s) :||K.M. Rich, A. Winter-Nelson & G.Y. Miller|
This paper discusses how economic tools can be targeted and combined to enhance their usefulness in analyses of animal disease problems. It briefly reviews the most commonly used economic modelling techniques to clarify the applicability of specific economic methods to different problems in animal health analysis. The paper then reviews applications of these methods in the literature and suggests how further research could integrate and improve different economic approaches and link epidemiological and economic methods to address a wider range of issues at different scales of analysis.
