US Internal Revenue Service Working Paper: “Early Withdrawals from Retirement Accounts During the Great Recession,” by Robert Argento, Victoria L. Bryant, and John Sabelhaus (November 2014, .pdf format, 26p.).

Abstract:

Early withdrawals from retirement accounts are a double-edged sword, because withdrawals reduce retirement resources, but they also allow individuals to smooth consumption when they experience demographic and economic shocks. We show that pre-retirement withdrawals trended up between 2004 and 2010, but the trend is modest given the substantial early withdrawals (particularly relative to new contributions) occurring in all of those years. Early withdrawal events are strongly correlated with shocks to income and marital status, and lower-income taxpayers are more likely to experience the types of shocks associated with early withdrawals, and they are more likely to have a taxable withdrawal when they experience a given shock.

Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences [University of Washington] Working Paper: “Small Area Estimation of Child Mortality in the Absence of Vital Registration,” by Laina D. Mercer, Jon Wakefield, Athena Pantazis, Angelina M. Lutambi, Honorati Masanja, and Samuel J. Clark (Working Paper No. 148, November 2014, .pdf format, 34p.).

Abstract:

Many people living in low and middle-income countries are not covered by civil registration and vital statistics systems. Consequently a wide variety of other types of data including many household sample surveys are used to estimate health and population indicators. In this paper we combine data from sample surveys and demographic surveillance systems to produce small-area estimates of child mortality through time. Small area estimates are
necessary to understand geographical heterogeneity in health indicators when full-coverage vital statistics are not available. For this endeavor spatio-temporal smoothing is beneficial to alleviate problems of data sparsity. Conventional hierarchical models are not immediately applicable since one must account for the survey weights in order to alleviate bias due to non-random sampling and non-response. The application that motivated this work is estimation of child mortality rates in fi ve-year time intervals in regions of Tanzania. Data come from Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) conducted over the period 1980-2010 and two demographic surveillance system sites. We derive a variance estimator that accounts for the complex survey weighting, and a simulation study examines the properties of our estimator, with a comparison to a jackknife alternative. For our application, the hierarchical models we consider include random eff ects for area, time and survey and we compare models using the conditional predictive ordinate (CPO). The method we propose is implemented via the fast and accurate integrated nested Laplace approximation (INLA).
