Families in context: A multi-country analysis of the intersecting determinants of child health disparities
Between-family inequalities in children’s health and wellbeing are well documented in the demographic literature. Less is known about how these between-family disparities vary within and across distinct familial contexts. My dissertation leverages spatial and temporal variation in familial contexts resulting from exogenous forces–including contraceptive expansion in sub-Saharan Africa and China’s One-Child Policy–to offer a multi-country, multi-level analysis of the intersecting role of contextual, familial and individual forces in patterning child health and wellbeing.
