Education's role in explaining diabetic health investment differentials
AbstractDiabetic tight blood sugar control minimizes the likelihood of complications. This study focuses on quantifying education's role in explaining diabetic investment in health capital. Ability and information proxies are used to test whether education's positive effect on diabetic compliance is causal. The paper's key finding is that education continues to have a positive impact on diabetic health investment even after controlling for IQ and available information.
