Abstract

This thesis consists of 4 self-contained chapters with topics at the intersection of economics, health and education.

 Each individual chapter presents a specific empirical investigation into one or more of the following broad category of questions:

  • How does health influence the economic possibilities of individuals?
  • How does economic circumstance and choice affect health of individuals?
  • How does the childhood environment shape the (economic) future of children?  

The chapters are:

  1.  Association of Type 1 Diabetes With Standardized Test Scores of Danish Schoolchildren

  2.  Socioeconomic Inequality in metabolic control among children with type 1 diabetes: a nationwide longitudinal study of 4,079 Danish children

  3.  Sick of Retirement?

  4.  Differential Effects of the Timing of Divorce on Children’s outcomes: Evidence from Denmark
