Abstract: We examine the effects of high temperatures during pregnancy on birth weight and later outcomes for Chinese adults. Exposure to hot weather triggers lower birth weight, and, in adulthood, non-negligible adverse effects on educational attainment, cognitive abilities, and height. The impacts are concentrated in the second trimester. Furthermore, we also find that the adverse effects of high temperatures are less likely to be caused by income effects.
