Children's Health, Well-being, and Human Capital Formation

The workshop will cover research related to how economic or other factors as well as public policy can affect the health, well-being, and human capital formation of infants and children.

Examples would include: the effects of early shocks and interventions on child health and development, the effect of the business cycle on infant and child health, the impact of taxes and benefits on child well-being, cognitive and noncognitive development, the role of pre-primary and primary school on early human capital development, as well as the influences of other factors such as the pre-natal environment, medical care quality, breastfeeding, etc. We will also address issues related to the medium- and long-term consequences of poor health during childhood.
