Discussion with Klara Peter
October 1, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
This presentation is based on Klara Peter’s co-authored study on the long-term health effects of the early-life shocks caused by the Nazi occupation of the Soviet Union during WWII. The study looks at individuals who, at the time of the war, were in utero or in their early childhood. The results help explain the developments affecting late-life well being of the survivors, such as mortality, certain health condition, depression, as well as subjective health assessments and life satisfaction.
Peter is an associate professor in the Department of Economics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She serves as a principal investigator for the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey (RLMS) at the Carolina Population Center.
