MPRC Seminar: The Effect of College Education on Health

Description:
Kasey Buckles, Assistant Professor, Department of Economics, University of Notre Dame About the Talk: We exploit exogenous variation in college completion induced by draft-avoidance behavior during the Vietnam War to examine the impact of college completion on adult mortality. Our preferred estimates imply that increasing college completion rates from the level of the state with the lowest induced rate to the highest would decrease cumulative mortality by 28 percent relative to the mean. Most of the reduction in mortality is from deaths due to cancer and heart disease. We also explore potential mechanisms, including differential earnings, health insurance, and health behaviors, using data from the Census, ACS, and NHIS. {Will appear in FYI on Mar 28, 2013
