The primary objective of this project is to focus on the health and education sectors, wherein measuring the outputs and productivities still are academically and practically unclear. The project will aim to use the various sets of micro level data and empirically analyze the determinants of the outputs and productivities. The key may be the establishment of causality. While rigorously addressing endogeneity, we seek an optimal resource allocation in both sectors and propose more cost-effective policies to improve the outcomes at each stage of people's life cycle.
