Issue Date: 2018
Abstract: This thesis looks into the determinants of child health: expenditure on tradition and remittances, using the cross-sectional dataset from Life in Kyrgyzstan 2013. Expenditure on tradition is found to be significant and have a positive relationship with the height-forage ZScore (1% significance level, 95% CI:0.006-0.043). Impact of remittances on child health status was investigated using simple OLS and 2SLS estimation methods. After using IV, it was found that remittances can improve the height-for-age ZScore by 2.97 points (15% significance level, 95% CI: -1.161-7.107).
