Abstract

This study explores the determinants of health status and the effects of the air and noise pollution on health status in Turkey during the period 2006-2012. The additional costs associated with their impact on health status are estimated. A pseudo panel data created based on age and region cohorts and two and three stage least squares instrumental variables approaches are followed using wind direction and regional complaint rates on air and noise pollution as instruments. Based on the favoured estimates the additional costs for individuals who reported problems with air and noise pollution are 20.00-25.00 Turkish Liras (TL) per month
