Day of an Assistant Professor (32)

Read Maccini and Yang's paper entitled "Under the Weather: Health, Schooling, and Economic Consequences of Early-Life Rainfall" (forthcoming in American Economic Review) for the climate change project. Indonesian women are taller and more educated if it rains more than average during the first year of life. No such relationship between early childhood rainfall and men's height and education.
