Health China as the essentials policy with advancing Global Health, contributing to decline the inequality between rural and urban health education, and recovering the domestic markets after Coronavirus. The goal of this study is to evaluate the economic returns on health educations in a developing country.
We combine life cycle mechanisms and safety beliefs to evaluate continuous values of health education from 720,900 migrants’ economic behaviors through the ERM model, average treatment effects, and heterogeneous treatment effects robust empirically approach.
We find that health education positively affects participation in social medical insurance and house purchasing. In contrast, the relationship between health education and saving rates is an inverted ‘U’ shape. Heterogeneous treatment effect empirically robust account for heterogeneity in the previous generation and young generation; urban citizenship and rural citizenship continuous effects of health education.
The finding suggests that health education stimulates immigrant consumption behaviors; however, extra health education is not a wise policy. Rural-urban citizenship acquisition bias is a significant factor of health education effects differential.
