Abstract

Parental socioeconomic status (SES) may affect a child's educational outcomes through a number of pathways, one of which is the child's health. This article asks two questions: What evidence exists about the effect of parental SES on child health? What evidence exists about the effect of child health on future outcomes, such as education? We conclude that there is strong evidence of both links.
