This paper builds on current research using the PSID that is focused on the synergistic effects of pre-K and K-12 school spending on children's long-run health status in adulthood. This research documents that only the PSID provides the data to demonstrate the significant interactive effects between access to pediatric care, nutrition, and pre-K-12 school spending on children's later-life success.
