A. “The Health Care Expenditure and Income: A Global Perspective,” Badi H. Baltagi, Raffaele Lagravinese, Francesco Moscone, and Elisa Tosetti (WP197, November 2016, .pdf format, 28p.).

Abstract:

This paper investigates the long-run economic relationship between health care expenditure and income in the world using data on 167 countries over the period 1995-2012, collected from the World Bank data set. The analysis is carried using panel data methods that allow one to account for unobserved heterogeneity, temporal persistence, and cross-section dependence in the form of either a common factor model or a spatial process. We estimate a global measure of income elasticity using all countries in the sample, and for sub-groups of countries, depending on their geo-political area and income. Our findings suggest that at the global level, health care is a necessity rather than a luxury. However, results vary greatly depending on the sub-sample analyzed. Our findings seem to suggest that size of income elasticity depends on the position of different countries in the global income distribution, with poorer countries showing higher elasticity.

B. “Stationary Points for Parametric Stochastic Frontier Models,” by William C. Horrace and Ian A. Wright (WP196, November 2016, .pdf format, 38p.).

Abstract:

The results of Waldman (1982) on the Normal-Half Normal stochastic frontier model are generalized using the theory of the Dirac delta (Dirac, 1930), and distribution-free conditions are established to ensure a stationary point in the likelihood as the variance of the inefficiency distribution goes to zero. Stability of the stationary point and “wrong skew” results are derived or simulated for common parametric assumptions on the model. Identification is discussed.

C. “The Academic Effects of Chronic Exposure to Neighborhood Violence,” Amy Ellen Schwartz, Agustina Laurito, Johanna Lacoe, Patrick Sharkey, and Ingrid Gould Ellen (WP195, November 2016, .pdf format, 47p.).

Abstract:

We estimate the causal effect of repeated exposure to violent crime on test scores in New York City. We use two distinct empirical strategies; value-added models linking student performance on standardized exams to violent crimes on a student’s residential block, and a regression discontinuity approach that identifies the acute effect of an additional crime exposure within a one-week window. Exposure to violent crime reduces academic performance. Value added models suggest the average effect is very small; approximately -0.01 standard deviations in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics. RD models suggest a larger effect, particularly among children previously exposed. The marginal acute effect is as large as -0.04 standard deviations for students with two or more prior exposures. Among these, it is even larger for black students, almost a 10th of a standard deviation. We provide credible causal evidence that repeated exposure to neighborhood violence harms test scores, and this negative effect increases with exposure.

D. “The Identification and Estimation of a Large Factor Model with Structural Instability,” by Badi H. Baltagi, Chihwa Kao, and Fa Wang (WP194, November 2016, .pdf format, 77p.).

Abstract:

This paper tackles the identification and estimation of a high dimensional factor model with unknown number of latent factors and a single break in the number of factors and/or factor loadings occurring at unknown common date. First, we propose a least squares estimator of the change point based on the second moments of estimated pseudo factors and show that the estimation error of the proposed estimator is Op(1). We also show that the proposed estimator has some degree of robustness to misspecification of the number of pseudo factors. With the estimated change point plugged in, consistency of the estimated number of pre and post-break factors and convergence rate of the estimated pre- and post-break factor space are then established under fairly general assumptions. The finite sample performance of our estimators is investigated using Monte Carlo experiments.

Center for Policy Research [Maxwell School, Syracuse University] Working Paper: “Incentivizing Healthy Eating in Children: An Investigation of the “Ripple” and “Temporal” Effects of Reward-Based Interventions,” by Saied Toossi (Working Paper No. 193, November 2016, .pdf format, 40p.).

Abstract:

Although previous studies have established the effectiveness of using small reward-based incentives in inducing the choice and consumption of healthier foods among children, little is known about their impact outside of experimental settings or their effectiveness over time when administered daily. This paper presents the results of a field experiment conducted to provide insight on these matters. The study employs a pretest-posttest within-subject design and was conducted at a summer program catering to low-income children between the ages of 5 and 12. Corroborating existing studies, the introduction of small reward-based incentives was found to induce large increases in the number of children choosing the healthy dessert options after lunch but disaggregating the results by week and days suggests that their impact diminishes over time. Attempts to ascertain their effect outside of experimental settings did not indicate that the introduction of rewards had any adverse effects, but also did not provide definitive results. Consequently, further research is needed in this regard.

Center for Policy Research [Maxwell School, Syracuse University] Working Paper: “So Many Hospitals, So Little Information: How Hospital Value Based Purchasing is a Game of Chance,” by Andrew I. Friedson, William C. Horrace, and Allison F. Marier (Working Paper No. 192, August 2016, .pdf format, 28p.).

Abstract:

As part of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, participating Medicare hospitals have part of their Medicare reimbursements withheld and then redistributed based on quality performance. The Hospital Value Based Purchasing payment reimbursement plan relies partly on ordinal rankings of hospitals to determine how money is distributed. We analyze the quality metric distributions used for payment and show that there is not enough information to reliably differentiate hospitals from one another near the payment cutoffs; and conclude that a large part of the payment formula is driven by sampling variability rather than true quality information. This results in point allocation under the payment formula that is random for a large proportion of the hospitals. An alternative payment plan is discussed.

Center for Policy Research [Maxwell School, Syracuse University] Working Paper: “A Framework for Measurement Error in Self-Reported Health Conditions,” by Ling Li and Perry Singleton (No. 191, August 2016, .pdf format, 28p.).

Abstract:

This study develops and estimates a model of measurement error in self-reported health conditions. The model allows self-reports of a health condition to differ from a contemporaneous medical examination, prior medical records, or both. The model is estimated using a two-sample strategy, which combines survey data linked medical examination results and survey data linked to prior medical records. The study finds substantial inconsistencies between self-reported health, the medical record, and prior medical records. The study proposes alternative estimators for the prevalence of diagnosed and undiagnosed conditions and estimates the bias that arises when using self-reported health conditions as explanatory variables.

Program on the Global Demography of Aging (Harvard University) Working Paper: “Population Aging in India: Facts, Issues, and Questions,” by Arunika Agarwal, Alyssa Lubet, Elizabeth Mitgang, Sanjay Mohanty, and David E. Bloom (PGDA Working Paper No. 132, 2016, .pdf format, 24p.).

Abstract:

India, one of the world’s two population superpowers, is undergoing unprecedented demographic changes. Increasing longevity and falling fertility have resulted in a dramatic increase in the population of adults aged 60 and up, in both absolute and relative terms. This change presents wide-ranging and complex health, social, and economic challenges, both current and future, to which this diverse and heterogeneous country must rapidly adapt. This chapter first lays out the context, scope, and magnitude of India’s demographic changes. It then details the major challenges these shifts pose in the interconnected areas of health, especially the massive challenges of a growing burden of noncommunicable diseases; gender, particularly the needs and vulnerabilities of an increasingly female older adult population; and income security. This chapter also presents an overview of India’s recent and ongoing initiatives to adapt to population aging and provide support to older adults and their families. It concludes with policy recommendations that may serve as a productive next step forward, keeping in mind the need for urgent and timely action on the part of government, private companies, researchers, and general population.

University of Wisconsin Center for Demography and Ecology Working Paper: “The Role of Hormones in Sexual Expression in Later Life,” by John DeLamater and Rengin Aktar (2016-03, August 2016, .pdf format, 27p.).

Abstract:

Objective. To assess the role of hormones relative to other individual and couple characteristics on sexual expression of US men and women between the ages of 57 and 85.

Methods. Using data from the National Social Life, Health, and Aging Project, we examine the relationship of salivary testosterone, estradiol, and progesterone to three measures of sexual expression. Regression analyses included measures of individual mental health and physical health, attitudes, and quality of relationship measures.

Results. Estrogen levels decline significantly among both men and women from 57 to 85. There are significant linear (positive) and curvilinear relationships between estrogen levels and sexual desire for men. There is a significant curvilinear relationship between progesterone levels and masturbation for men. Greater sexual desire is associated with younger age, good emotional health, physical activity, and being in a relationship. More frequent masturbation is associated with younger age, higher levels of desire, and less liberal attitudes toward sex. More frequent sexual activity is associated with younger age and greater desire.

Discussion. Hormones have some influence on the sexual functioning of men. Influences on the functioning of both men and women include sexual desire, physical health and activity, emotional health and whether one is in a relationship

Center for Policy Research [Syracuse University] Working Paper: “The Dynamic Effect of Disability on Marriage: Evidence from the Social Security Disability Insurance Program,” by Ling Li and Perry Singleton (Working Paper No. 190, June 2016, .pdf format, 26p.).

Abstract:

This study examines the dynamic effect of disability on marriage. Data on disability and marriage come from the New Beneficiary Survey, designed to characterize new beneficiaries of the Social Security Disability Insurance Program. Using an event-study model, the study finds that disability onset decreased marriage among beneficiaries, but only at younger ages. The study further examines whether the effect of disability on marriage is due to formation, dissolution, or both, and whether the effect varies by educational attainment and subsequent mortality. The results highlight the importance of marriage selection in the oft-cited relationship between marriage and better health.
