Economic Effects of the 1918 Influenza Pandemic: Implications for a Modern-Day Pandemic
Thomas A. Garrett (au)
The possibility of a worldwide influenza pandemic in the near future is of growing concern for many countries around the globe. Many predictions of the economic and social costs of a modern-day influenza pandemic are based on the effects of the influenza pandemic of 1918. This report begins by providing a brief historical back-ground on the 1918 influenza pandemic, a short-lived, but tragic event. Detailed influenza mortality statistics for cities and states are presented which provide insight into mortality differences based on race, income and place of residence. Next, anecdotal evidence on the economic effects of the 1918 influenza are reported using newspaper articles published during the pandemic. This report also includes a survey of economic research on the subject, and a list of the likely economic effects of a modern-day influenza pandemic. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
