Abstract

Previous studies of the determinants of respiratory health have treated both smoking and air pollution as being exogenous. Using an instrumental variables approach, we estimate a simple production technology in which smoking is treated as being endogenously determined. Doing so, we find, increases the predicted absolute effects of smoking on respiratory health; relative to air pollution, smoking becomes a more important determinant when it is treated as an endogenous variable.
