Children's Multidimensional Health and Medium-Run Cognitive Skills in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

This paper examines the effects of children’s health on their education in later life stages in low- and middle-income countries. It has the following four objectives:

  • To explore whether the positive relationship between children’s height and cognitive skills at pre-school age found in previous studies holds in Young Lives sample countries
  • To assess whether additional health and nutrition indicators, rarely available or used in the existing literature, are significantly associated with later cognitive achievements
  • To examine whether the whole contribution of children’s multidimensional health to mid-term cognitive attainments can be adequately summarized by a composite deprivation index
  • To investigate a few possible channels through which early childhood health may affect cognitive skills.
