Princeton University Center for Research on Child Well Being: "Family Structure and Mental Health Trajectories," by Sarah Meadows, Sara McLanahan, and Jeanne Brooks-Gunn (2006-33-FF, November 2006, .pdf format, 59p.).

Abstract:

Existing research shows that marriage and marital stability are positively associated with health and well-being. Thus, recent increases in births to unmarried parents and the instability surrounding these relationships raise concerns about the possible health effects associated with changes in family formation. Using latent trajectory models and data from the Fragile Families and Child Well-Being Study (FFCWS) this paper examines trajectories of mothers' mental and physical health, specifically focusing on transitions into and out of relationships with the child's biological father (n = 2,649). Mothers who remain married to their child's father are in better mental and physical health than continuously cohabiting or continuously single mothers. Among mothers living with the father at birth, exiting a coresidential relationship increases mental health problems and decreases self-rated health. These effects appear to be short-lived, as suggested by stress theory, followed by periods of resilience in the absence of other transitions. Among mothers who are not living with the father, entering a residential relationship improves both mental and physical health, but only prior to the child's first birthday. The implications of these findings for selection and causation arguments, as well as social policies promoting stable healthy unions between non-married parents, are also discussed.

Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research [Rostock, Germany]: "Fertility and women's employment: a meta-analysis," by Anna Matysiak and Daniele Vignoli (WP-2006-048, November 2006, .pdf format, 27p.).

Abstract:

Our research objective was to systematise the existing literature on the relation between fertility and women's employment on the micro level. Instead of carrying out a traditional literature review, we conducted a meta-analysis. This allowed us to compare estimates from different studies standardised for the country analysed, the method applied, the control variables used, or the sample selected. We focused on two effects: the impact of employment on fertility and the impact of children on employment entry. The first finding of our study is a high variation in the studied effects among the institutional settings, reflecting the existence of a north-south gradient. Second, our results confirm a significant reduction in the conflict between family and work over time. Finally, they demonstrate that a failure to account for unobserved heterogeneity, the respondent's social background as well as partner, job, and macro-contextual characteristics leads to a serious bias to the estimated effects.

Vienna Institute of Demography (Austian Academy of Sciences): "Population Projections for non EU / non EFTA Countries in Europe," by Marija Mamolo and Sergei Scherbov (European Demographic Research Papers 2, 2006, .pdf format, 39p.).

Abstract:

In this study we develop population projections for the non EU/non EFTA countries in Europe. The natural population dynamics recently observed in these countries are moving in a similar direction as in the rest of Europe, even though there is significant, country-specific heterogeneity regarding the intensity and timing of these changes. Contrary to other European countries, the majority of these countries will see a favourable period in terms of the characteristics of their population age profiles in the near future. With a low share of young and elderly populations on the one hand, and a prominent working-age population on the other hand, this demographic window could trigger socio-economic development. Yet this situation will only prevail during a short period, until the dependency ratio once more increases as the ageing process advances, which also seems to be an item on the future demographic agenda of these countries.

Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER) [University of Essex, Colchester, UK]: "Intra-household Allocation of Resources: Inferences from Non-resident Fathers' Child Support Payments," by John F. Ermisch and Chiara Pronzato (ISER Working Paper 2006-057, November 2006, .pdf format, 28p.).

Abstract:

A large proportion of divorced and separated fathers form new partnerships. The new partner's preferences are likely to put a much lower weight (if any) on expenditures on the man's children from his previous union. As a consequence, his own and his partner's income would have different impacts on his child support payments if partners' relative incomes affect bargaining power in household decisions. This paper exploits within-father variation in the British Household Panel Survey (1991-2003) to estimate the impacts of partners' incomes on child support payments. We find that a higher share of father's income in household income increases the probability of paying child support and its amount relative to household income.
