The results perplexed the 2015 Nobel laureate who co-authored the paper. Given strong correlation between suicide and divorce (especially in middle aged folks), it is surprising the researchers did not look deeper into this possible connection. I suspect they would have found it’s not a simple coincidence that Title IV-D was revamped in 1998 into the beast we have today (in 1997 the generic “noncustodial” classification replaced “absent parent”).
Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and Department of Economics, Princeton University. Contributed by Angus Deaton, September 17, 2015. Abstract:
“This paper documents a marked increase in the all-cause mortality of middle-aged white non-Hispanic men and women in the United States between 1999 and 2013. This change reversed decades of progress in mortality and was unique to the United States; no other rich country saw a similar turnaround. The midlife mortality reversal was confined to white non-Hispanics; black non-Hispanics and Hispanics at midlife, and those aged 65 and above in every racial and ethnic group, continued to see mortality rates fall. This increase for whites was largely accounted for by increasing death rates from drug and alcohol poisonings, suicide, and chronic liver diseases and cirrhosis. Although all education groups saw increases in mortality from suicide and poisonings, and an overall increase in external cause mortality, those with less education saw the most marked increases. Rising midlife mortality rates of white non-Hispanics were paralleled by increases in midlife morbidity. Self-reported declines in health, mental health, and ability to conduct activities of daily living, and increases in chronic pain and inability to work, as well as clinically measured deteriorations in liver function, all point to growing distress in this population. We comment on potential economic causes and consequences of this deterioration.”
