Suffer for the Faith? The Impact of Parental Religiosity on Children’s Health (ongoing)
This paper contributes to the literature by exploring the transmission channel between parental religious beliefs and health outcomes of their children. It is well examined in economic literature that individuals’ own religiosity positively affects their various socioeconomic outcomes such as health, education, income, and life satisfaction. This paper proposes a theoretical framework and, controlling for endogeneity of religiosity, tests empirically whether parental religiosity affects children’s health. The results of this paper can be used for better understanding of children’s health conditions in different religious communities and for designing healthcare policies.
