Measuring the Effects of Prime-age Adult Mortality in Kenya

This paper estimates the impact of prime-age adult mortality on household composition, crop production, asset holdings, and non-farm income using nationwide household survey data in rural Kenya. Life expectancy has declined by 10 years due in Kenya due to HIV/AIDS. Linking detailed nationwide household survey data on agricultural production, off-farm incomes, assets, and mortality/morbidity, this work goes beyond village case studies that have limited earlier work on the topic.
