Journal article | Annual Review of Economics
Eric French and John Bailey Jones
In this review, we survey the economic literature on the health–retirement link in developed countries.
Journal article | Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization
Orazio Attanasio and Katja M. Kaufmann
In this paper we analyze the role of expected labor and marriage market returns as determinants of the college enrollment decisions of Mexican high school graduates. Moreover, we investigate whether the (relative) weights of these factors differ by gender. We use data on individuals’ expectations ...
Journal article | American Journal of Health Economics
Bernard Black, José-Antonio Espín-Sánchez, Eric French and Kate Litvak
We use the best available longitudinal data set, the Health and Retirement Study, and a battery of causal inference methods to provide both central estimates and bounds for the long-term effect of health insurance on health and mortality among the near-elderly (initial age 50–61) over a 20-year ...

The authors use detailed health care data for the period 2009–11 from nine countries to measure the composition and magnitude of medical spending in the three years before death.

Journal article | The Review of Economic Studies
Antonio Merlo and Áureo de Paula
This article studies the non-parametric identification and estimation of voters’ preferences when voters are ideological. We establish that voter preference distributions and other parameters of interest can be identified from aggregate electoral data.
Journal article | Economic Development and Cultural Change
Paul Glewwe, Sonya Krutikova and Caine Rolleston
This paper investigates whether disadvantaged children learn less than advantaged children when both types of children are enrolled in the same school, using data from Vietnam and Peru. Two different results emerge: in Vietnam, there is no evidence that schools are less effective for disadvantaged ...
Journal article | Public Choice
I study a game theoretic spatial model of elections with many heterogeneous constituencies in which both party and candidate behavior are modeled. Parties choose a platform and a ‘whip rate,’ representing the proportion of final policy that will be made by the party, as opposed to by the ...
Journal article | Fiscal Studies, Volume 38, Issue 2
We consider reforms that raise carbon prices faced by households and reduce the variation in carbon prices across gas and electricity use, improving the efficiency of emissions reduction.
Journal article | Fiscal Studies, Volume 38, Issue 2
Andrew Leicester and George Stoye
We use cross-sectional household survey data in England between 2002–03 and 2010–11 to explore potential barriers to ownership of three common energy efficiency measures (loft insulation, cavity wall insulation and full double glazing) in residential properties. There is little compelling ...

Journal article | Journal of Applied Econometrics
In this paper, we propose a doubly robust method to estimate the heterogeneity of the average treatment effect with respect to observed covariates of interest.

Journal article | Oxford Economic Papers
This paper uses a new data set containing both individual survey data on wealth holdings and administrative data on earnings histories to examine the nature of the relationship between lifetime income and saving rates.
Journal article | Econometrica
We develop a new quantile-based panel data framework to study the nature of income persistence and the transmission of income shocks to consumption.
Journal article | Review of Economics and Statistics
We derive conditions under which a demand function with nonseparable unobserved heterogeneity in tastes can be estimated consistently by nonparametric quantile regression subject to the shape restriction from the Slutsky inequality.

Journal article | Economic Development and Cultural Change
Paul Glewwe and Sonya Krutikova
This article identifies some of the gaps in the existing literature pertaining to childhood development. It then introduces the Young Lives dataset, explaining the importance of such comparable data from longitudinal studies in different countries for this field of research, before exploring the ...
