Abstract [en]

This paper examines whether access to electricity has an impact on acute respiratory infections for children in Tanzania aged 0-5 years old. A standard OLS regression model is conducted on a dataset including variables from five different, yearly based, household surveys conducted in Tanzania. The results found are rather limited but a slight correlation is found between acute respiratory disease within the gender group girls as well as for children living in rural areas. The weak results are due to a low electrification rate in the country and more research on the topic is recommended when Tanzania has reached a higher and more stable level of electrification.
