Abstract: Previous research showed that child health has a long-run impact on health and labor market outcomes in adulthood and that it varies with the economic background of the family. This dissertation consists of three self-contained chapters, each of which explores a different determinant of child health. The determinants investigated are: copayments for health care in childhood (chapter 2), guidelines for health care of newborn infants (chapter 3) and economic conditions during pregnancy (chapter 4). Using a detailed administrative data set from Sweden and employing microeconometric methods that help identify causal relationships, each chapter estimates the effect of the determinant on child health and – in chapters 2 and 4 – how it depends on family background.
