Abstract

I examined how childhood circumstances of parents’ smoking and drinking behaviors influenced their children’s health status in later life. During the initial survey, I asked the respondents about their parents’ unhealthy behaviors when they were in primary school. Using this data, I conducted estimations to find out whether even after controlling respondents’ drinking and smoking behaviors, their health status was lower, if during their childhood, their mothers had smoked. On the other hand, similar detrimental effects were not observed for mothers’ drinking as well as fathers' smoking and drinking behaviors.
