Abstract

The -fetal origin hypothesis- predicts that the exposure to unfavorable environmentsearly in life negatively affects future health and non-health e.g. income outcomes. This paperevaluates this theory by examining the effect of in utero exposure to influenza pandemicof 1957-58, the 2nd biggest of the 20th century, on the future earnings of exposed cohort.Using data from National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979 NLSY79, a difference-in-differencesmodel is estimated for four demographic groups: white and non-white males andfemales. While the effect of this exposure on earnings of white individuals is statisticallyinsignificant, the effect is both economically and statistically significant and contradictoryfor non-whites. Non-white females experienced a $6100 loss in their yearly wage while thewage of non-white males increased by about $11900.
