We conducted a scoping review of the evidence and identify future directions for research. We systematically searched the public health and economics literature on spillover effects from human capital, as indicated by educational attainment, to the health and/or survival of family members. We assessed (i) downward spillover effects (from parents and/or grandparents to offspring), (ii) horizontal spillover effects (from partners, spouses, and/or siblings), and (iii) upward spillover effects (from offspring to their parents and/or grandparents). We assessed the frequency of studies, their study designs, findings, and identified priority areas to inform future research on spillover effects of human capital....
