The labour supply of nurses in the UK: evidence from the British Household Panel Survey
AbstractWe investigate the impact of the onset of prenatal care and the quality of health services on the health of the newborn. Our specification is nonlinear and simultaneous and uses latent factors to allow for unobserved influences on onset and quality of prenatal care to affect infant’s health. We apply maximum simulated likelihood (MLS) techniques to estimate the parameters of our models. The quality of prenatal health care shows a large and positive effect on the health of the newborn. On the contrary, we find a small and non significant effect of the timely use of prenatal care on the weight of the infant.
