Congratulations to UHERO’s Timothy Halliday on his new publication in the Journal of Public Economics, “Intergenerational mobility in self-reported health status in the US.” Halliday and his coauthors show that including both parent health and income in models of intergenerational mobility increases the explanatory power of child outcomes, and document striking health mobility gaps by race, region and parent education.
