题目: The Long-term Effect of Early Adversity on Mental Well-being: Evidence from the 1959-1961 Great Famine in China (with Qianping Ren)

 

摘要:This paper, using a difference-in-difference method with the variation of birth cohorts and regional excess death rates, tries to quantify the effects of the 1959-1961 Great Famine in China on mental well-being of the survivors, which we use depression, happiness, and life satisfaction as the proxies. We find that, exposure to the Great Famine in early childhood caused significantly negative effects on mental well-being. Our falsification test shows there is little difference in the above outcomes between the two cohorts born in 1963-1964 and 1965, which validates our difference-in-difference method. Our findings clearly show the long-term impact of adverse events such as famine in early childhood on mental well-being. Moreover, the negative effects on mental well-being hold even after we control for physical health and social-economic outcomes, which supports the psychological trauma theory from psychology.
