Location of health professionals: The supply side

Allen C. Goodman and Brent C. Smith

Regional Science and Urban Economics, 2018, vol. 68, issue C, 148-159

Abstract: Urban/regional economic analyses help explain several features of health service providers including output determination. Spatial agglomerations increase factor productivity, and therefore rents paid and wages earned. Larger agglomerations imply higher rents and wages, justifying the clustering of health professionals in large cities and medical centers.
