Child health and rainfall in early life

Abstract

This article investigates the links between early-life rainfall and long-term child health in Indonesia. The model specification pays close attention to the timing of rainfall before and after birth, and to the mechanisms by which rainfall might affect health. The model separates out effects of the amount of rainfall from variability in rainfall, and the direction of variability. Results provide evidence of early life rainfall having both nutrition and disease effects on child height-for-age, especially for urban children.
