A. “Fertility Desires, Intentions and Behaviour: A Comparative Analysis of Their Consistency,” by Rita Freitas and Maria Rita Testa (VID Working Paper 4/2017, 2017, .pdf format, 29p.).

Abstract:

Realisation of childbearing intentions implies couple’s dyadic interaction and proceptive behaviour. Studies on childbearing intentions and outcomes have rarely considered non-use of contraception or ‘proceptive behaviour’ in general as an important mediator of fertility outcomes. The traits-­–desires-­–intentions-­–behaviour theory (Miller and Pasta, 1996; Miller et al., 2004; Miller, 2010) expects proceptive behaviour to be the most accurate predictor of a birth and intentions to be more predictive than desires. We test this theory using longitudinal data from the Generations and Gender Surveys from Austria, France and Bulgaria (2004–2013) and performing logistic regression models on birth outcomes which includes as key explanatory variables different pairwise combinations of desires, intentions and contraceptive (or proceptive) behaviour. The findings show that an individual’s intention to have a child predicts the birth of a child better than non-use of contraception, or proceptive behaviour; however, proceptive behaviour is a better predictor of a birth than non-­–use of contraception. Finally, perception of the partner’s agreement on having a child now is less predictive than an individual’s intention to have a child within three years. This paper calls for the collection of genuine couple-level data on fertility intentions and behaviour and more refined measures on both contraceptive and proceptive behaviour.

Program on the Global Demography of Aging [Harvard University] Working Paper: “Legal Status and Deprivation in India’s Urban Slums: An Analysis of Two Decades of National Sample Survey Data,” by Laura B. Nolan, David E. Bloom, and Ramnath Subbaraman (PGDA Working Paper No. 135, February 2017, .pdf format, 41p.).

Abstract:

In India, 52–98 million people live in urban slums, and 59% of slums are “non-notified” or lack legal recognition by the government. In this paper, we use data on 2,901 slums from four waves of the National Sample Survey (NSS) spanning almost 20 years to test the hypothesis that non-notified status is associated with greater deprivation in access to basic services, thereby increasing vulnerability to poor health outcomes. To quantify deprivation for each slum, we construct a basic services deprivation score (BSDS), which includes variables that affect health, such as access to piped water, latrines, solid waste disposal, schools, and health centers. In a regression analysis, we find a robust association between non-notified status and greater deprivation after controlling for other variables. Our analysis reveals a progressive reduction in deprivation the longer a slum has been notified. In addition, data from the 2012 NSS show that, despite suffering from greater deprivation, non-notified slums were much less likely to receive financial aid from government slum improvement schemes. Our findings suggest that legally recognizing non-notified slums and targeting government aid to these settlements may be crucial for improving health outcomes and diminishing urban disparities.

US Bureau of Economic Analysis Working Paper: “Quasi-Corporations and Institutional Sectors in the U.S. National Accounts,” by Dylan G. Rassier, Melissa J. Braybrooks, Jason W. Chute, and Howard I. Krakower (WP2017-1, July 2016, .pdf format, 62p.).

Abstract:

The System of National Accounts (SNA) classifies each resident institutional unit to one of five institutional sectors. The corporations sector in the SNA includes a concept of quasicorporations, which are unincorporated enterprises that have no legal status separate from their owners but are engaged in market production and act independently of their owners. In the U.S. national income and product accounts (NIPAs), the treatment of quasi-corporations is currently not consistent with recommendations in the SNA. In particular, unincorporated enterprises owned by households and governments span more than one sector for production and income measures. In addition, some unincorporated enterprises that may not qualify as quasicorporations are treated as quasi-corporations and vice versa. The result yields a lack of alignment between measures of production and income generated in production within a given institutional sector. This paper summarizes data on unincorporated enterprises in the U.S. economy in order to inform the sectoral treatment of U.S. quasi-corporations under SNA recommendations.

Center for Policy Research [Maxwell School, Syracuse University] Working Paper: “The Effect of Workplace Inspections on Worker Safety,” by Ling Li and Perry Singleton (Working Paper No. 201, February 2017, .pdf format, 25p.).

Abstract:

The Occupation Safety and Health Administration enforces safety regulations through workplace inspections. To identify the effect of inspections on worker safety, this study exploits quasi-experimental variation in inspections due to OSHA’s Site Specific Targeting plan. The SST plan used establishment-level data on accidents and injuries to target establishments for inspection. The primary inspection list consisted of establishments with case rates exceeding a cutoff. This cutoff generated a discontinuous increase in inspections, which is used to identify the effect of inspections on worker safety. Using the fuzzy regression discontinuity design and local linear regression, the estimated effect of an inspection on cases involving days away from work, job restrictions, and job transfers is -1.607 per 100 full-time equivalent workers. The effect is most pronounced among manufacturing establishments below the 90th percentile of the case-rate distribution.
