Measuring the Effect of Income on Adult Mortality Using Longitudinal Administrative Record Data
AbstractThis study enhances the 1973 CPS-IRS-SSA Exact Match File with more complete Social Security mortality data for 1973-1978 and with updated Social Security earnings and disability data. It uses the resulting data set to examine the effect of income, controlling for education, on the mortality of white married men aged 35-65. It finds that low income continues to have a large and significant effect on mortality risk, controlling for disability, and on the probability of death through its effect on disability.
