Abstract

In this paper we analyze the relationship between skills and some outcomes later
in life for a population of premature children. Pretreatment skills and characteristics
are good predictors of childhood and adulthood skills and outcomes. Income
per capita and parents education at birth are positively correlated with home environment
at 6 and 12 months of corrected age. Moreover, parents education and the
proportion of workers at home are correlated with the number of preschool years
attended by children. Interestingly, health indicators taken during the first year of
life are critical factors for decision to enrol into a university, to obtain better results
in math scores and earn larger wages.
