Dr. Norton's research interests in health economics include long-term care and aging, econometrics, and the use of biomarkers in social science research. Dr. Norton has led several studies of the economics of long-term care and aging. He has studied how nursing home reimbursement affects quality and cost of care, the extent of adverse selection and the bequest motive in the private long-term care insurance market, and the behavioral effect of Medicaid long-term care insurance on residents who enter a nursing home as private payers.
