Recessionary shocks and their relationship to health: Evidence from the Michigan Recession and Recovery Study

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigator:   Sarah Burgard

Since the onset of the recession, many Americans have been affected by multiple negative events? perhaps losing jobs, their housing, their savings and also accumulating significant debt. In our proposed analyses, we seek to understand the degree to which ?domino effects? occur across multiple domains, from a job loss to financial hardship to housing loss and how these events affect subsequent health. We will use data from the first two waves of the Michigan Recession and Recovery Study (MRRS), which follows a stratified random sample of English-speaking adults aged 19-64 who lived in Southeastern Michigan (Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne counties) at the time of the initial data collection in winter, 2010. The specific research questions addressed by our analyses are: 1) What is the extent of Recession-related shocks, and how common are multiple shocks? 2) Are individuals experiencing a ?domino effect? of shocks across the domains of employment, housing, and financial strain, and is the risk greater for traditionally disadvantaged groups in Southeastern Michigan? and 3) What are the consequences of these shocks or sets of shocks for respondents? health? Do certain combinations of events or the timing of events matter most?
