An Economic Analysis of Children's Health and Intellectual Development

Linda N. Edwards, Michael Grossman

NBER Working Paper No. 180
Issued in May 1977

The basic purpose of our research is to contribute to an understanding of the joint determination of children's cognitive development and their health. Although there is a large literature concerning the first of these issues, there has been little work on the latter. We also explore interrelationships between various aspects of children's physical health and their intellectual development and, in particular, attempt to answer the important question of whether poor health retards the cognitive development of children.
