  • Growing Up In A Steel Town: Early-Life Pollution Exposure And Later-Life Mortality | DuPRI
    pollution An important possibility is that exposure to high levels of pollution in childhood and early adulthood can result in a lifetime of health problems leading to increased mortality rates at older ages Second epidemiological and medical literature suggests that exposure to pollutants is linked to particular health deficits and so it is plausible that those exposed to pollution in early life have an increased risk of dying from certain diseases I evaluate this issue using a unique proprietary dataset Medicare Part B records matched to Social Security and NCHS Vital Statistics My focus is on a sample of over 390 000 individuals born in small cities towns in Pennsylvania during the years 1916 through 1927 Many of these individuals were born in places with steel production and thus likely had exposure to high levels of air pollution in childhood and early adulthood These individuals have significantly higher rates of mortality post age 65 than those born in comparable towns that did not have steel production facilities Additionally for those individuals who can be uniquely matched to an underlying cause of death I observe a relatively increased risk of dying from cancer There are three notable features of the relationship
