Catalano studies the implications of population stressors for gestation. His best known work focuses on the economy as stressor and fetal death as an outcome. The work shows that environmental stressors affect who survives gestation and, therefore, the health of birth cohorts that sum into the populations for public health professionals take responsibility.
