Authors:Tamm, Marcus

Abstract:This paper analyses the association between health outcomes of newborn children and mother?s poverty status during pregnancy.We use a new questionnaire accompanying the GSOEP which collects abundant information on health outcomes. The findings indicate that there is generally no effect from poverty to health, except on the probability of preterm birth. Furthermore,we find some indication of intergenerational transmission of health status.
