1. Mathes, Michael Terry. Essays in Health Economics: Effect of Economic Forces on Drinking and Smoking-Related Outcomes.

Degree: PhD, Economics, 2015, Vanderbilt University

Excessive alcohol consumption and cigarette smoking are two activities that may have large negative impacts on health. Countless laws and research have focused on these activities because of the severity of their outcomes. In this dissertation, I address three economic forces that influence drinking and smoking behaviors directly and indirectly. I investigate how the opening of a Native American casino changes the drinking behavior of different populations. I research how tax competition affects cigarette prices and whether beer excise taxes fully pass through to prices. I find that the opening of a Native American casino leads to large increases in binge drinking among non-Native Americans living in the county where the casino is established. I show that cities located near Native American casinos, borders of states with lower cigarette taxes, and cities with higher rates of internet penetration have lower cigarette prices. Finally, I find that beer taxes pass-through to beer prices at a lower rate than previously reported. These three chapters provide important, new empirical evidence regarding economic forces and their effect on drinking and smoking outcomes. Advisors/Committee Members: John A. Graves (committee member), Federico H. Gutierrez (committee member), William J. Collins (committee member), Christopher S. Carpenter (Committee Chair).

Subjects/Keywords: Native American Casinos; Tax Pass-Through; Cigarette Price Competition; Binge Drinking

2. Eppink, Samuel T. Three Essays on LGBT Economics and Policy.

Degree: PhD, Economics, 2019, Vanderbilt University

This dissertation examines the socioeconomic and health profiles of sexual minorities, especially with respect to how they are impacted by public policy. In the first chapter I explore the relationship between legal same-sex marriage (SSM) and rates of common sexually transmitted infections. Results indicate that legal SSM is associated with a significant decrease in syphilis rates, an especially strong proxy for risky sex between men. In the second chapter, which is joint work with Christopher S. Carpenter, we make use of new information on sexual orientation to first reproduce the well-documented finding of an earnings premium for self-identified lesbians. However, these data also show—for the first time in the literature—that self-identified gay men also earn significantly more than comparable heterosexual men. In the third chapter, which is joint work with Christopher S. Carpenter and Gilbert Gonzales, we provide the first large-scale evidence on transgender status, gender identity, and socioeconomic outcomes in the United States using representative data from 31 states. Individuals who identify as transgender have significantly lower employment rates, lower household incomes, higher poverty rates, and worse self-rated health than otherwise similar men who are not transgender. Advisors/Committee Members: Federico H. Gutierrez (committee member), Andrew Dustan (committee member), Gilbert Gonzales (committee member), Christopher S. Carpenter (Committee Chair).

3. Zhao, Li. Essays on the Econometrics of Discrete Games of Complete Information.

Degree: PhD, Economics, 2016, Vanderbilt University

This dissertation considers questions in the econometrics of discrete games of complete information. Chapter 1 proposes an econometric framework that explicitly models the selection of equilibria as a discrete choice model. Such framework could achieve point identification. A simulation based approach is proposed to estimate the structural model. Chapter 2 discusses the relationship among the three types of partial identification approaches available in the literature. I show a modified version of bound estimation is equivalent to the sensitive analysis approach and the sharp identification approach in the sense that they draw inference on the same identified set. Chapter 3 studies identification and estimation of discrete games in large networks. Moment inequalities on choice probabilities of subnetworks are constructed to partially identify the model. Monte Carlo studies are conducted in Chapter 1 and 3 to evaluate the performance of approaches developed in this dissertation. Two applications are considered, Chapter 1 contains a study on the entry competition in the home improvement industry; Chapter 3 studies peer effects on smoking in friend networks. Advisors/Committee Members: Federico H. Gutierrez (committee member), Yanqin Fan (committee member), Alejandro Molnar (committee member), Tong Li (Committee Chair).

Subjects/Keywords: social network; empirical game-theoretic analysis; strategic interaction; peer effect; entry competition; partial identification
