Displacement due to Armed Conflict and Violence in Childhood and Older Adult Health: The Case of the Middle-income Country of Colombia,” by Mary McEniry, Rafael Samper-Ternent and Carlo Cano Guitierrez (CDE Working Paper 2018-03, April 2018, .pdf format, 43p.).

Abstract:

Large displacement of populations in developing economies due to internal armed conflict and violence is of international concern but there has been relatively little research on the long-term consequences of displacement on older adult health, in particular displacement during childhood. We examine displacement in the middle-income country of Colombia which experienced a large displacement of its population over the last 50-60 years due to internal armed conflict and violence. Using a national representative survey of older adults, SABE-Colombia (2014-2015, n=23,694), we estimate the degree to which displacement during childhood and adulthood relative to those never displaced is associated with health (obesity, chronic conditions, depression, cognition, stress, functionality, frailty, self-reported health), controlling for age, gender, SES, residence, other indicators of early life conditions (infections, nutrition, health, SES, family violence), and risky adult behavior (smoking, little exercise, no prevention, poor nutrition). We find that displacement during childhood is associated with higher risk of chronic conditions and stress; being displaced and having rheumatic fever during childhood increases the risk of heart disease. Displacement in adulthood and early life infections increase the risk of poor adult health but timing of displacement may also provide resilience to the effects of poor early life conditions.

Examining the Multigenerational Effects of Obesity, Overweight and Stunting in a Latin American Middle Income Country: The Case of Colombia,” by Mary McEniry, Carmen Elisa Florez, Renata Pardo, Rafael Samper-Ternent, and Carlos Cano-Gutierrez (CDE Working Paper 2017-07, 2017, .pdf format, 45p.).

Abstract:

Examining multigenerational effects on health in Latin American populations from grandparents to subsequent generations is a fruitful area for research. Many Latin American populations have experienced rapid demographic and nutritional changes across generations with possible consequences for older adult health and subsequent generations. Understanding the multigenerational effects of obesity – an important health concern internationally – and early life nutritional status on child stunting merits further consideration. Using comprehensive data collected on households and individuals throughout Colombia (ENDS, ENSIN), we examine differences in child health according to whether grandparents are living/not living in the household and the degree to which obesity and height in older generations predicts child obesity, overweight and stunting in multigenerational households. We find that households with children living with grandparents have a higher prevalence of child obesity and lower prevalence of stunting; junk food consumption is similar across all types of households. In multigenerational households, we find strong intergenerational associations between grandmother-mother obesity and mother-female child obesity (overweight), and strong multigenerational associations between (1) grandfather obesity and female child obesity and overweight; (2) grandmother obesity and male child overweight; and (3) grandparent height and child stunting, mediated by mother height. We conclude that grandparent proximity, family resources, and relationship to household head play an important role in child obesity, overweight and stunting. In spite of grandparent proximity, mother being present in the household is important in terms of child health. Puzzling gender patterns for obesity/overweight raises the possibility of additional multigenerational factors affecting child health.

Health gradients in South Africa: Inequalities in the measure of the beholder,” by Carlos Riumallo-Herl,David Canning, Ryan Wagner, Chodziwaddiza Kabudula, and Mark Collinson (PGDA Working Paper No. 139, May 2017, .pdf format, 30p.).

Abstract:

As the literature on health inequalities continues to grow very few studies have tested the sensibility of this measure to the choice of welfare indicator. In this paper we use data from an aging survey in South Africa to evaluate the health gradients using two measures of economic status: consumption per capita and an asset index. In particular, we measure the concentration indexes for a variety of health indicators ranging from general health service utilization to individual self-reported and biomarker outcomes. We find that the concentration indexes for different health indicators differ across economic indicators suggesting that the choice of welfare indicator can lead to different estimations of inequalities. In line with other studies, these results advocate for greater caution when selecting the economic indicator in the analysis of inequalities and for more explicit testing of different indicators in future studies. Overall, the results call for a greater understanding of how SES can influence health to generate appropriate measurements of health inequalities.
