B. Annual Lecture: "Global patterns of income and health: facts, interpretations, and policies," by Angus Denton (October 2006, .pdf format, 38p.).

Abstract:

People in poor countries live shorter lives than people in rich countries so that, if we scale income by some index of health, there is more inequality in the world than if we consider income alone. Such international inequalities in life expectancy decreased for many years after 1945, and the strong correlation between income and life-expectancy might lead us to hope that economic growth will improve people's health as well as their material living conditions. I argue that the apparent convergence in life expectancies is not as beneficial as might appear, and that, while economic growth is the key to poverty reduction, there is no evidence that it will deliver automatic health improvements in the absence of appropriate conditions. The strong negative correlation between economic growth on the one hand and the proportionate rate of decline of infant and child mortality on the other vanishes altogether if we look at the relationship between growth and the absolute rate of decline in infant and child mortality. In effect, the correlation is between the level of infant mortality and the growth of real incomes, most likely reflecting the importance of factors such as education and the quality of institutions that affect both health and growth.

A. "C-reactive protein across the menstrual cycle," by Katherine Wander, Eleanor Brindle, and Kathleen A. O'Connor (Working Paper 06-05, 2006, Word format, 28p.).

Abstract:

Context: C-reactive protein (CRP) is a widely-used, sensitive biomarker of inflammation. Studies conducted among users of exogenous hormones suggest that estrogen increases CRP, while progesterone decreases CRP. Examinations of CRP in cycling women suggest the opposite: CRP has a negative relationship with endogenous estrogen and a positive relationship with endogenous progesterone.

Objective: To evaluate the effect of menstrual cycle-related hormone changes and events (menstruation and ovulation) on CRP.

Design: Urine and blood samples from twelve days during the menstrual cycle were assayed for CRP, progesterone, estrogen, and follicle stimulating hormone. Ovulation day was identified using hormone levels. Presence or absence of menses was reported by subjects.

Participants: Collections were made across one or two cycles from eight normally-cycling, non-contracepting participants.

Main Outcome Measures: Relationships between CRP and predictors (which, based on literature review, included estrogen, progesterone, follicle stimulating hormone, menses, and ovulation) were tested using random-effects linear regression.

Results: All cycles were ovulatory; day of ovulation was identified for nine cycles. A ten-fold increase in progesterone was associated with a 23% increase in CRP (p = .01), a ten-fold increase in estrogen was associated with a 29% decrease in CRP (p = .05), and menses was associated with a 17% increase in CRP (p = .18); no association between ovulation or FSH and CRP was found.

Conclusions: Endogenous estrogen is associated with decreases in CRP; endogenous progesterone is associated with increases in CRP. Hormone changes across the menstrual cycle should be controlled for in future studies evaluating CRP.

B. "Serum, plasma, and dried blood spot C-reactive protein enzyme immunoassay for population research," by Eleanor Brindle, Masako Fujita, Kathleen A. O'Connor (Working Paper 06-06, December 2006, .pdf format, 11p.).

Abstract:

Background: C-reactive protein (CRP) is increasingly used as a biomarker of morbidity and mortality risk in studies of population health, creating a need for efficient, inexpensive assays for large-scale studies. Antibodies for a previously described assay suitable for population research are no longer available, making a replacement assay necessary, preferably one yielding comparable results from any type of blood specimen.

Methods: We developed an enzyme immunoassay using readily available monoclonal antibodies to measure CRP in serum, plasma, or dried blood spots made from venous or capillary blood collection. CRP ELISA performance was evaluated by standard methods, and by comparing CRP concentrations measured in the new assay with those from a previously described assay no longer available. Effects of sample type were tested by measuring CRP in serum, plasma, and dried blood spot specimens collected from ten individuals.

Results: Experiments to assess assay limits of detection, parallelism, recovery, imprecision, and concordance with an established method (Pearson correlation = 0.988, n = 20) demonstrated the validity of the new assay. We found excellent agreement among CRP measurements in serum, plasma, and dried blood spot specimens (Pearson correlations ranged from 0.949 to 0.994, n = 10).

Conclusions: This CRP assay is a reliable, efficient, and inexpensive new tool appropriate for use in large-scale population health research.

Center for Research on Child Well-Being (Princeton University): "Do Good Partners Make Good Parents?: Relationship Quality and Parenting in Two-Parent Families," by Marcia Carlson, Sara McLanahan, and Jeanne Brooks-Gunn (2006-34-FF, November 2006, .pdf format, 47p.).

Abstract:

We use data from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study with a cross-lagged longitudinal design to examine how couple relationship quality and parental engagement with children affect one another during the first three years of a child's life for both married and unmarried parents who are living together. The sample includes 1,647 co-resident couples in urban areas (772 married and 875 unmarried at baseline). Mothers and fathers report about their couple relationship quality and parental engagement at both one and three years after their baby's birth. Overall, we find that relationship quality leads to greater parental engagement for both mothers and fathers, consistent with previous research showing positive 'spillover' from marital quality to parenting. We find that married and cohabiting couples are generally similar in this respect, even though they differ in socio-demographic characteristics. We find that when couples are having their first birth, relationship quality is more strongly tied to engagement by fathers (but not mothers).

A. "Do Students Care about School Quality? Determinants of Dropout Behavior in Developing Countries," by Eric A. Hanushek, Victor Lavy, and Kohtaro Hitomi (w12737, December 2006, .pdf format, 34p.).

Abstract:

School quality and grade completion by students are shown to be directly linked, leading to very different perspectives on educational policy in developing countries. Unique panel data on primary school age children in Egypt permit estimation of behavioral models of school leaving. Students perceive differences in school quality, measured as expected achievement improvements in a given school, and act on it. Specifically, holding constant the student's own ability and achievement, a student is much less likely to remain in school if attending a low quality school rather than a high quality school. This individually rationale behavior suggests that common arguments about a trade-off between quality and access to schools may misstate the real issue and lead to public investment in too little quality. Further, because of this behavioral linkage, there is an achievement bias such that common estimates of rates of return to years of school will be overstated. The paper demonstrates the analytical importance of employing output-based measures of school quality.

B. "Global Patterns of Income and Health: Facts, Interpretations, and Policies," by Angus Deaton (w12735, December 2006, .pdf format, 38p.).

Abstract:

People in poor countries live shorter lives than people in rich countries so that, if we scale income by some index of health, there is more inequality in the world than if we consider income alone. Such international inequalities in life expectancy decreased for many years after 1945, and the strong correlation between income and life-expectancy might lead us to hope that economic growth will improve people's health as well as their material living conditions. I argue that the apparent convergence in life expectancies is not as beneficial as might appear, and that, while economic growth is the key to poverty reduction, there is no evidence that it will deliver automatic health improvements in the absence of appropriate conditions. The strong negative correlation between economic growth on the one hand and the proportionate rate of decline of infant and child mortality on the other vanishes altogether if we look at the relationship between growth and the absolute rate of decline in infant and child mortality. In effect, the correlation is between the level of infant mortality and the growth of real incomes, most likely reflecting the importance of factors such as education and the quality of institutions that affect both health and growth.

London [UK] School of Economics Health Policy and Economics: "Regulating private health insurance in the European Union: the implications of single market legislation and competition policy," by Sarah Thomson and Elias Mossialos (WP4, November 2006, .pdf format, 30p.).

Abstract:

This paper examines the implications of the single market in insurance for regulation of private health insurance in the European Union. It considers areas of uncertainty in interpreting the third non-life insurance directive, particularly with regard to when and how governments may regulate private health insurance, and questions the Directive's capacity to promote consumer and social protection in health insurance markets. The Directive reflects the regulatory norms of the late 1980s and early 1990s, when boundaries between 'social security' and 'normal economic activity' were still relatively well defined in most member states. Today these boundaries are increasingly blurred, and as governments look to private health insurance to ease pressure on public budgets, uncertainty about the scope of the Directive and concerns about its restrictions on material regulation are likely to grow.
