Does everyone have the same opportunity to succeed at school? While there is a certain consensus on the inequalities caused by social differences, a team of researchers demonstrates that the effort of each pupil is underestimated in explaining school results.

Heatwaves: stifling the economy

Heatwaves are often overlooked in the analysis of extreme weather events, particularly in terms of their economic impact. This lack of research and the population's low perception of risk limit the adoption of adaptation measures, despite the fact that the health effects of heatwaves are largely avoidable.

High voltage climate in Brazil: when drought kills

Are we going to end up killing each other in the face of high temperatures? Without going that far, climate change is already having a serious impact on insecurity. Brazil, infamous for its crime rate, is on the front line of environmental disasters. According to economist Phoebe W. Ishak, between 1991 and 2015, Brazil's severe droughts not only affected farmers' incomes, but also increased the homicide rate.

Two-thirds of general practitioners say they have to refuse new patients as their preferred doctor

Only in French | In this study published by DREES, Bérengère Davin-Casalena and her co-authors, including Bruno Ventelou (AMU/CNRS/AMSE), take stock of general practitioners' perceptions of the supply of general medicine in their area, and of changes in practices and conditions of practice. Here, we look at how GPs are adapting their practices to cope with the decline in medical demographics, for example, by taking on new patients as GPs.
