Regional Variation in Health Care Utilization and Mortality
Publication date: Available online 19 February 2020Source: Journal of Health EconomicsAuthor(s): Anna Godøy, Ingrid HuitfeldtAbstractGeographic variation in health care utilization has raised concerns of possible inefficiencies in health care supply, as differences are often not reflected in health outcomes. Using comprehensive Norwegian microdata, we exploit cross-region migration to analyze regional variation in health care utilization. Our results indicate that place factors account for half of the difference in utilization between high and low utilization regions, while the rest reflect patient demand. We furthe...

The Average and Distributional Effects of Teenage Adversity on Long-TermHealth
Publication date: Available online 12 February 2020Source: Journal of Health EconomicsAuthor(s): Jie Gong, Yi Lu, Huihua XieAbstractA central question in human development is what causes health inequalities over the life cycle. This paper links adversity in the teen years to individuals’ long-term health outcomes. We examine a mandatory rustication program, the“send-down” policy during China's Cultural Revolution, and employ a regression discontinuity design to estimate the impact on individuals’ physical and mental health outcomes 40 years later. Our results suggest that rusticated youths were more...

The relative value of different QALY types
Publication date: Available online 13 February 2020Source: Journal of Health EconomicsAuthor(s): Emily Lancsar, Yuanyuan Gu, Dorte Gyrd-Hansen, Jim Butler, Julie Ratcliffe, Liliana Bulfone, Cam DonaldsonAbstractThe oft-applied assumption in the use of Quality Adjusted Life Years (QALYs) in economic evaluation, that all QALYs are valued equally, has been questioned from the outset. The literature has focused on differential values of a QALY based on equity considerations such as the characteristics of the beneficiaries of the QALYs. However, a key characteristic which may affect the value of a QALY is the type of QALY itsel...

Confirmatory bias in health decisions: Evidence from the MMR-autism controversy
Publication date: Available online 10 February 2020Source: Journal of Health EconomicsAuthor(s): Mengcen Qian, Shin-Yi Chou, Ernest K. LaiAbstractSince Wakefield et al. (1998), the public was exposed to mixed information surrounding the claim that measles–mumps–rubella vaccine causes autism. A persistent trend to delay the vaccination during 1998–2011 in the US was driven by children of college-educated mothers, suggesting that these mothers held biases against the vaccine influenced by the early unfounded claim. Consistent with confirmatory bias, exposures to negative information about the vaccine streng...

Did Parental Involvement Laws Grow Teeth? The Effects of State Restrictions on Minors’ Access to Abortion
Publication date: Available online 3 February 2020Source: Journal of Health EconomicsAuthor(s): Caitlin Myers, Daniel LaddAbstractWe compile data on the locations of abortion providers and enforcement of parental involvement laws to document dramatic increases in the distances minors must travel if they wish to obtain an abortion without involving a parent or judge: from 58 miles in 1992 to 454 in 2016. Using both double and triple-difference estimation strategies, we estimate the effects of parental involvement laws, allowing them to vary with the distances minors might travel to avoid them. Our results confirm previous f...

The Effect of Prenatal Maternity Leave on Short and Long-term Child Outcomes
Publication date: Available online 30 January 2020Source: Journal of Health EconomicsAuthor(s): Alexander Ahammer, Martin Halla, Nicole SchneeweisAbstractMaternity leave policies are designed to safeguard the health of pregnant workers and their unborn children. We evaluate a maternity leave extension in Austria which increased mandatory prenatal leave from 6 to 8 weeks. We exploit that the assignment to the extended leave was determined by a cutoff date. We find no evidence for significant effects of this extension on children's health at birth or long-term health and labor market outcomes. Subsequent maternal health and ...

The Effect of the National Kidney Registry on the Kidney-Exchange Market
Publication date: Available online 30 January 2020Source: Journal of Health EconomicsAuthor(s): Roksana Ghanbariamin, Bobby W. ChungAbstractWe assess the causal effect of the National Kidney Registry (NKR), the largest national kidney-exchange network in the U.S., on kidney-exchange outcomes. Analyzing a unique database hosted by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) that contains information on all kidney donors, wait-listed candidates, and transplant recipients in the U.S., we find that patients in an NKR hospital are 2.5 to 3 times more likely than their counterparts in a non-NKR hospital to receive a ...

Publication date: Available online 25 January 2020Source: Journal of Health EconomicsAuthor(s): Padraig Dixon, William Hollingworth, Sean Harrison, Neil M. Davies, George Davey SmithAbstractEstimates of the marginal effect of measures of adiposity such as body mass index (BMI) on healthcare costs are important for the formulation and evaluation of policies targeting adverse weight profiles. Most estimates of this association are affected by endogeneity bias. We use a novel identification strategy exploiting Mendelian Randomization – random germline genetic variation modelled using instrumental variables – to id...
