Severe Air Pollution and School Absences: Longitudinal Data on Expatriates in North China

Haoming Liu () and Alberto Salvo ()

Working Papers from eSocialSciences

Abstract: The paper uses a six-year panel of 6,500 students at three international schools in a major city in north China to estimate how fluctuation in ambient PM2.5 over the preceding fortnight impacts daily absences. The preferred estimates are based on the exclusion restriction that absences respond to atmospheric ventilation such as thermal inversions only through ventilation’s effect on particle levels.

Keywords: school absences; air pollution; particulate matter; PM2.5; acute exposure; longitudinal study; heterogeneous effects; thermal inversions; atmospheric ventilation; environmental health; environmental damage; environmental valuation; avoidance behavior; distributed lags; instrumental variables (search for similar items in EconPapers)
