Correction to: Review of Economics of the Household

 https://doi.org/10.1007/s11150-018-09440-z

The original version of this article unfortunately contained some errors in reference citations and in significance indicators in some of the tables. These errors were made in the production process and the authors were not responsible for them.

In Tables 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8, there were some errors in the significance indicator. The corrected tables are mentioned along with this erratum.

In Tables 11 and 12, there was a formatting error with the numbers under “Girls” column and “Both parents' illness” row. The corrected tables are presented in this erratum.

In Table 14, some significance indicator were missing under the columns “School enrolment” and “Weekly working hours”. The corrected table is presented along in this erratum.

In Table 18, the significance indicator were missing in the footnote of the table.

In overview of the existing literature section, the citation date in the first sentence of the first paragraph should read as: Case and Paxson 2001.

The original article has been corrected.

Note: In this specification, we compare the change in outcomes from previous to current period of children shocked in the current period to those of children of the same cohort whose parents will receive a shock 1 period later. In this model, children of parents who are ill in the future are the control group for children whose parents are ill in the current period. Specifically, individuals whose parents are ill in 2008 act as control for those whose parents are ill in 2006 in the 2004–2006 comparison
