Project Details

Description

While there are several different examples in the literature that have independently explored the relationship between women's position within the household and the health of household members, e.g., women and children, there is a gap in a uniform empirical framework that can identify within the household such an interaction. Such an empirical framework would allow mapping of the behavior observed in the data with respect to the determinants of health and human capital outcomes of household members, e.g., consumption patterns of mothers and children.
