Abstract

This paper examines the relationship between wealth and health outcomes in the United States. Building upon the work of Schwandt and others, I compare factors such national savings and stock market outcomes with the health of American retirees. Using data provided by the Health and Retirement Study for the years 1998-2011, I use various methods including instrumental variable regression and panel data analysis to conclude that national wealth and public health share a highly positive relationship.
