The Relationship between Obesity and Diabetes among Mexican Elderly: Results from MHAS 2001-2014,” by Guido Pinto (Working Paper No. 2014-04, 2014, .pdf format, 21p.).

Abstract:

Objective. To assess the magnitude of the relationship between obesity and type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) among Mexican elderly population. Material and

Methods. Data from the 2001, 2003, and 2012 Mexican Health and Aging Study (MHAS) was used and estimates were obtained using multivariate logit regression methods for panel data.

Results. Logit models produced positive, strong, and significant estimates of the relationship between obesity and T2DM at the population-level, after adjusting for respondent’s individual traits and thus, show that obese individuals, particularly those with abdominal obesity, are more likely to develop diabetes.

Conclusion. The empirical findings gleaned in this paper provide additional evidence of the role of obesity as the primary driver of diabetes. This means that reductions in obesity rates, especially waist obesity, may lead to important declines in morbidity and mortality from diabetes, which consequently may lead to cost reductions for the health system.

Physical Stature Decline and the Health Status of the Elderly Population in England,” by Alan Fernihough and Mark E. McGovern (PGDA Working Paper No. 112, January 2014, .pdf format, 35p.).

Abstract:

Few research papers in economics have examined the extent, causes or consequences of physical stature decline in aging populations. Using repeated observations on objectively measured data from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA), we document that reduction in height is an important phenomenon among respondents aged 50 and over. On average, physical stature decline occurs at an annual rate of between 0.08% and 0.10% for males, and 0.12% and 0.14% for females-which approximately translates into a 2cm to 4cm reduction in height over the life course. Since height is commonly used as a measure of long-run health, our results demonstrate that failing to take age-related height loss into account substantially overstates the health advantage of older birth cohorts relative to their younger counterparts. We also show that there is an absence of consistent predictors of physical stature decline at the individual level. However, we demonstrate how deteriorating health and reductions in height occur simultaneously. We document that declines in muscle mass and bone density are likely to be the mechanism through which these effects are operating. If this physical stature decline is determined by deteriorating health in adulthood, the coefficient on a measured height when used as an input in a typical empirical health production function will be affected by reverse causality. While our analysis details the inherent difficulties associated with measuring height in older populations, we do not find that significant bias arises in typical empirical health production functions from the use of height which has not been adjusted for physical stature decline. Therefore, our results validate the use of height among the population aged over 50.

Food Stamps, Food Sufficiency, and Diet-Related Disease among the Elderly,” by Nadia Greenhalgh-Stanley and Katie Fitzpatrick (DP 1407-13, February 2013, .pdf format, 44p.).

Abstract:

In 2010, more than 2.3 million households (7.9 percent) with an elderly member were food insecure and even more reported some difficulties with obtaining adequate resources for food (Coleman-Jensen et al. 2010). It is widely acknowledged that any food insufficiency contributes to poor health and increases the likelihood of diet-related disease. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly the Food Stamp Program, is the primary nutrition assistance program aimed at reducing food-related hardship. Yet, participation rates for the eligible elderly are estimated at 35 percent (Cunnyngham 2010). This low take-up rate among the elderly and its effects on food insufficiency and diet-related disease is relatively unexplored. This paper uses restricted-use Health and Retirement Study (HRS) data to examine the effect of SNAP participation on reported food insufficiency, health measures, and diet-related disease to better understand potential long-term health consequences of the elderly. To address the endogeneity of the SNAP participation decision and identify the causal effects of SNAP use on the elderly, we instrument for SNAP participation with state and county-level variables related to SNAP outreach, including radio and television advertisements, and state SNAP rules. We find that the causal effect of SNAP participation results in higher levels of preventative health care, some improved diet-related outcomes, but a higher incidence of food distress, which has potential policy implications about the generosity of SNAP benefits for the elderly.
