Center for Research on Child Wellbeing [Princeton University] Working Paper: “The Intergenerational Consequences of Mass Incarceration: Implications for Children’s Contact with Grandparents,” by Kristin Turney (WP13-07-FF, May 2013, .pdf format, 42p.).
In response to the rapid growth in mass incarceration, a burgeoning literature documents the mostly deleterious consequences of mass incarceration for individuals and families. But mass incarceration, which has profoundly altered the American kinship system, may also have implications for relationships that span across generations. In this paper, I use data from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study to examine how paternal incarceration has altered one important aspect of intergenerational relationships, children’s contact with grandparents. Results from both ordinary least squares (OLS) and fixed-effects regression models show that incarceration decreases the frequency of children’s contact with paternal, but not maternal, grandparents. More than one-quarter of this negative relationship is explained by separation between parents that occurs after paternal incarceration, highlighting the ‘kinkeeping’ role of mothers. Additionally, consequences are concentrated among children living with both parents prior to paternal incarceration and among children of previously incarcerated fathers. Taken together, results provide some of the first evidence that the collateral consequences of incarceration may extend to intergenerational relationships.
Vienna Institute of Demography Working Paper: “Is it (dis)Advantaged to Have Mixed Parentage? Exploring Educational and Labour Characteristics of Children of Interethnic Unions in Britain,” by Raya Muttarak (VID Working Paper No. 01/2013, 2013, .pdf format, 29p.).
Extant studies commonly claim that mixed ethnic children face difficulties in affiliating with either of the parental ethnic group, which consequently negatively affects their identity development. However, the majority of the existing literature is based on clinical evidence of small highly self-selected samples of those seeking psychological assistance. This paper aims to investigate the socioeconomic outcomes of mixed ethnic children using the Office for National Statistics Longitudinal Study data (N=35,302) which is a nationally representative 1% sample of the population in England and Wales. We hypothesise that an interethnic union between one immigrant parent and one parent from a majority population could promote integration of an offspring. Here educational attainment and employment status are used as indicators of socioeconomic integration. Logistic regression is employed to estimate the probabilities of having a degree qualification and being in employment of mixed ethnic individuals comparing to children of two ethnic minority parents and native children of two native white parents.
Controlling for parental demographic and socio-economic characteristics as well as neighbourhood characteristics, the results suggest that having one native white parent bring children of immigrants closer to the characteristics of the majority population, signalling better integration of children with mixed parentage compared to their counterparts whose both parents are from minority ethnic group.

US Federal Trade Commission, Bureau of Economics Working Paper: “Decomposing the American Obesity Epidemic,” by Nathan E. Wilson and Thomas G. Koch (Working Paper No. 138, May 2013, .pdf format, 20p.).
In recent decades, the prevalence of obesity in America has increased dramatically. Though it has attracted less attention, the demographic composition of the American population also changed during this period. We decompose the increase in the average body mass index of the American population over 30 years and show that demographic changes explain a statistically significant but economically marginal amount of the change. Instead, the rise in average obesity is best explained by increases in BMI within demographic groups. Furthermore, our results indicate that groups’ experiences have been heterogeneous with younger women experiencing especially large gains in weight. We uncover some evidence consistent with the hypothesis that this can be at least partially attributed to increased labor force participation.

The official Office of Management and Budget (OMB) metro and nonmetro categories have been subdivided into three metro and six nonmetro categories. Each county in the U.S. is assigned one of the 9 codes. This scheme allows researchers to break county data into finer residential groups, beyond metro and nonmetro, particularly for the analysis of trends in nonmetro areas that are related to population density and metro influence. The Rural-Urban Continuum Codes were originally developed in 1974. They have been updated each decennial since (1983, 1993, 2003, 2013), and slightly revised in 1988. Note that the 2013 Rural-Urban Continuum Codes are not directly comparable with the codes prior to 2000 because of the new methodology used in developing the 2000 metropolitan areas. See the Documentation for details and a map of the codes.”

The standard Office of Management and Budget (OMB) metro and nonmetro categories have been subdivided into two metro and 10 nonmetro categories, resulting in a 12-part county classification. This scheme was originally developed in 1993. This scheme allows researchers to break county data into finer residential groups, beyond metro and nonmetro, particularly for the analysis of trends in nonmetro areas that are related to population density and metro influence.”

The standard LM tests for spatial dependence in linear and panel regressions are derived under the normality and homoskedasticity assumptions of the regression disturbances. Hence, they may not be robust against non-normality or heteroskedasticity of the disturbances. Following Born and Breitung (2011), we introduce general methods to modify the standard LM tests so that they become robust against heteroskedasticity and non-normality. The idea behind the robustification is to decompose the concentrated score function into a sum of uncorrelated terms so that the outer product of gradient (OPG) can be used to estimate its variance. We also provide methods for improving the finite sample performance of the proposed tests. These methods are then applied to several popular spatial models. Monte Carlo results show that they work well in finite sample.

Center for Family and Demographic Research [Bowling Green State University] Working Papers:
A. “Physical and Psychological Victimization, Strained Relationships, and Young Adults’ Depressive Symptoms,” by Monica A. Longmore, Wendy D. Manning, Peggy C. Giordano, and Jennifer E. Copp (2013-04, 2013, .pdf format, 41p.).
Interpersonal violence peaks during the early adult years and may have implications for the well-being of female and male victims. Drawing on relational theory and data from the Toledo Adolescent Relationships Study (TARS) (n = 984), we examined associations between intimate partner victimization, indicators of strained relationships, and depressive symptoms. In zero-order models, we found that both physical and psychological victimization increased depressive symptoms. Including strained relationship measures attenuated the effects of physical and psychological victimization on depression. Moreover, the effect of physical victimization is significant at above average levels of respondent control, respondent jealousy, and obsessive love. The associations between both types of victimization and depressive symptoms did not differ by gender, nor were the effects of relationship strain conditional on gender. These findings contribute to our understanding of the links between victimization and well-being.
B. “Adolescent Dating Violence: The Influence of Friendships and School Context,” by Peggy C. Giordano, Angela M. Kaufman, Wendy D. Manning, and Monica A. Longmore (2013-03, 2013, .pdf format, 30p.).
Prior research has examined parental and peer influences on adolescent dating violence, but fewer studies have explored the broader social contexts of adolescent life. The present research examines the effect of variations in school context on IPV perpetration, while taking into account parental, peer and demographic factors. Results indicate that net of parents’ and friends’ use of violence, the normative climate of schools, specifically school-level partner violence, is a significant predictor of respondents’ own IPV. Norms about dating also contributed indirectly to odds of experiencing IPV. However, a more general measure of school-level use of violence toward friends is not strongly related to variations in IPV, suggesting the need to focus on domain-specific influences.
