Abstract: This dissertation consists of three self-contained chapters. Each chapter applies the tools of applied microeconomics to questions related to health economics, the economics of education, and peer effects. The unifying theme of this thesis is the emphasis on the social context as a primary driver of individuals’ decisions and lifetime trajectories, including their health and human capital. Largely, I focus on two topics. The first topic covers the causes and consequences of mental health problems, both during adolescence and in adulthood. The second topic investigates the role of peer effects in individuals’ decision making. Chapter 1 and 2 contribute to the first topic; Chapter 3 to the latter.
