Chattopadhyay (c), H.N. Saiyed (c), M. Pal (b), P. Bharati (d) Keywords: Height; BMI; Human health capital; India; Malnutrition; Labour productivity; Wage differentials; Coalmine workers; Weight; Physical stature; Anthropometrics Abstract: This paper analyses earning/wage differentials by height among coalmine workers in India. Our findings suggest that workers of above average height earn 9-17% more than their shorter counterparts and 6-13% more than average reference height. The results suggest that long-term investments in health human capital might ensure increase of labour productivity and thereby earnings, particularly in underdeveloped economies.
