This paper presents a model that delineates the beneficial and detrimental effects of economic growth on health. Beneficial effects include growth in real per capital income, income distribution via welfare transfer payments, and educational level. Detrimental effects include rapid economic growth and unemployment. The model is based on United States mortality rate data since 1909, classified by age. The validity of the model is sustained by empirical test based on multiple regression analysis.
