Abstract

In contrast to other studies, this paper examines the determinants of short-term child health by controlling for the long-term health status of children.� Using data from rural Ethiopia and linear mixed models that control for individual heterogeneity, the empirical analysis indicate that the effect of per capita household expenditures on the weight-for-age z-scores of children in rural Ethiopia is influenced by the children's height-for-age z-scores implying that the efficiency with which short-term health inputs are transformed into health outcomes is significantly affected by long-term health status of children.
