主   题:The Intergenerational Effects of Parental Early Life Hunger Experience: Evidence from China

 

 

主讲人: 张 亿

 

 

  要:We investigate the effect of parental early life hunger experience on adult children’s education, health, and labor market performance. Using detailed life-history data from China, we find that hunger experience at maternal early childhood and paternal teenage has significant negative impact on adult children’s years of education, while parental hunger experience at school-age has significant negative impact on adult children’s self-reported health. But these negative effects do not translate into negative impacts on children's labor market participation or annual household income. The first-generation effects show similar pattern, with intergenerational transmission coefficients larger than 1. Our findings suggest that the negative effects of early life deprivation on education and health are amplified over generations, which indicates that early-life nutrition intervention, especially at certain “critical period” can have an intergenerational multiplier effect.
