Long-Run Consequences of Short-Term Health Shocks

Doctoral Dissertation

Abstract

The three chapters included in this dissertation investigate the long-run consequences of short-term health shocks. The first chapter examines how malaria in children in Indonesia impacts household well-being and subsequent compensatory behavior. The second chapter examines how influenza during different periods of childhood affects educational attainment in the United States. The third chapter examines how parents respond to the risk and cost of influenza that their young children face in terms of their influenza vaccination decisions for those children.
