University of Wisconsin Center for Demography and Ecology Working Paper: “Recovery Migration after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita: Spatial Concentration and Intensification in the Migration System,” by Katherine Curtis, Elizabeth Fussell and Jack DeWaard (CDE Working Paper No. 2014-08, 2014, .pdf format, 42p.).

Abstract:

Changes in the human migration systems of Hurricane Katrina- and Rita-affected Gulf of Mexico coastline counties provide an example of how climate change may affect coastal populations. Crude climate change models predict a mass migration of “climate refugees,” but an emerging literature on environmental migration suggests most migration will be short-distance and short-duration within existing migration systems, with implications for the population recovery of disaster-struck places. In this research, we derive a series of hypotheses on recovery migration predicting how the migration system of hurricane-affected coastline counties in the Gulf of Mexico was likely to have changed between the pre-disaster and the recovery periods. We test these hypotheses using data from the Internal Revenue Service on annual county-level migration flows, comparing the recovery period migration system (2007-2009) to the pre-disaster period (1999-2004). By observing county-to-county ties and flows we find that recovery migration was strong, as the migration system of the disaster-affected coastline counties became more spatially concentrated while flows within it intensified and became more urbanized. Our analysis demonstrates how migration systems are likely to be affected by the more intense and frequent storms anticipated by climate change scenarios with implications for the population recovery of disaster-affected places.

US Internal Revenue Service Working Paper: “Labor Force Participation Elasticities of Women and Secondary Earners within Married Couples,” by Robert McClelland, Shannon Mok, and Kevin Pierce (September 2014, .pdf format, 34p.).

Abstract:

Labor supply elasticities are often used to evaluate the effect of changes in tax rates on the total hours worked in the economy. Historically, married women have tended to have larger labor supply elasticities than their spouses because they were the secondary earners in a couple. However, those elasticities have fallen sharply in recent decades-a decline that has been attributed to greater labor force participation rates and increased career orientation among married women. Indeed, a growing share of wives earn more than their husbands, raising the question whether a person’s sex or relative earnings is the relevant factor affecting the sensitivity of participation to wage and tax rates. In this paper, we use administrative data to examine whether women or lower-earning spouses have larger labor supply elasticities. We present descriptive evidence on the share of women who are the primary earner and the frequency of transitions into and out of employment by sex and relative earnings. We find that lower earning spouses are more likely to start and stop working than women, except when a couple starts a family. We then model an individual’s work decision using a dynamic probit model to isolate the labor supply response to changes in tax rates. We estimate that the participation elasticity with respect to the net-of-tax rate of the secondary earner-the spouse who typically has lower earnings-is about 0.03, slightly higher than that for women, though both of these overall elasticities are small. Participation elasticities with respect to income for both women and secondary earners are effectively zero. Our estimates are robust to several alternative models, including alternative specifications of secondary earner.

Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences [University of Washington] Working Paper: “InterVA4: An R package to analyze verbal autopsy data,” by Zehang Richard Li, Tyler H. McCormick, and Samuel J. Clark (Working Paper No. 146, September 2014, .pdf format, 10p.).

Abstract:

Verbal autopsy (VA) is a widely used survey-based tool for inferring the cause of death (COD) in regions where deaths are not recorded routinely. InterVA4 is a popular algorithm for assigning CODs from VA data, but is currently only available to practitioners through a proprietary software program. The InterVA4 package provides an open-source, R implementation of the InterVA4 algorithm. The package aims to enable more exible statistical analyses of verbal autopsy results with simple functions and built-in graphical visualization. This paper discusses the relevant algorithm, the implementations in R and a discussion of the InterVA-4 model.
