University of Wisconsin Institute for Research on Poverty Working Paper: “Is It Worth It? Postsecondary Education and Labor Market Outcomes for the Disadvantaged,” by Benjamin Backes, Harry J. Holzer, and Erin Dunlop Velez (DP1425-14, August 2014, .pdf format, 42p.).

Abstract:

In this paper we examine a range of postsecondary education and labor market outcomes, with a particular focus on minorities and/or disadvantaged workers. We use administrative data from the state of Florida, where postsecondary student records have been linked to Unemployment Insurance (UI) earnings data and also to secondary education records. Our main findings can be summarized as follows: (1) gaps in secondary school achievement can account for a large portion of the variation in postsecondary attainment and labor market outcomes between the disadvantaged and other students, but meaningful gaps also exist within achievement groups; and (2) earnings of the disadvantaged are hurt by low completion rates in postsecondary programs, poor performance during college, and not choosing high-earning fields. In particular, significant labor market premia can be earned in a variety of more technical certificate and Associate in Arts (AA) programs, even for those with weak earlier academic performance, but instead many disadvantaged (and other) students choose general humanities programs at the AA (and even the bachelor’s or Bachelor of Arts) level with low completion rates and low compensation afterwards. A range of policies and practices might be used to improve student choices as well as their completion rates and earnings.

University of Wisconsin Center for Demography and Ecology Working Paper: “Family Structure and Child Health in Argentina,” by Maria Muniagurria and Beatriz Novak (Working Paper 2014-09, August 2014, .pdf format, 19p.).

Abstract:

We explore the influence of family structure on the nutritional status of Argentinian children aged 2-5 years with data drawn from the nationally representative National Survey of Health and Nutrition (2004-5).

We use logistic regressions to model two outcomes: stunting (low height-for-age) and overweight (excessive weight-for-height).

For the stunting model, we find that two-parent families have significantly better outcomes when they have relatives in residence with them and that single parenting per se does not have adverse effects. The beneficial role of relatives is reversed for overweight: Children living with one or two parents have significantly higher odds of being overweight when relatives are present in their household. Single parenting is associated with lower odds of overweight but only if relatives are not part of the residential family.
