Estimating Health Benefits When Behaviours are Endogenous: A Case of Indoor Pollution in Rural Nepal
AbstractThe effects of indoor air pollution on respiratory health after adjusting for endogenous health behaviours are estimated. The study includes measurements on indoor air pollution and is based on detailed survey 600 households from Syangja and Chitwan districts of Nepal. Instrumental variable probit regressions to find the effects of pollution-reducing interventions on chronic bronchitis, asthma and acute respiratory infections are used. [SANDEE].
