Education's role in explaining diabetic health investment differentials

Economics of Education Review Volume 17, Number 3 ISSN 0272-7757 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


This paper studies the relationship between education and diabetic health investment. The empirical work focuses on how education affects heath investment proxies such as smoking propensities, blood sugar control and diet. Increased education has a positive impact on diabetic health investment, even after controlling for IQ and available information, but the health investments of diabetics are less responsive to increases in education than are those of non-diabetics.
