Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research Working Paper: “Leaving the parental home in post-war Japan: social, economic and demographic determinants,” by Setsuya Fukuda (WP-2010-07, February 2010, .pdf format, 36p).

Abstract:

This paper examines the relationship between home-leaving intensities of young adults and the rapid social, economic, and demographic changes that took place in post-World War II Japan. By using event-history modeling, the study shows that the declines in sibling numbers and in rural residence discourage young adults from leaving home before marriage. The practice of stem-family norms helps to explain the delay to some extent. Finally, marriage delay has a substantial impact on later home-leaving as leaving home is closely linked with marriage in Japan.

Center for Research on Child Well-Being [Princeton University] Working Paper: “Family Instability and Young Children’s Physical Health,” by Sharon Bzostek and Audrey Beck (WP08-11-FF, February 2010, .pdf format, 28p.).

Abstract:

This paper uses new longitudinal data about a cohort of young children born to mostly unmarried parents to examine the association between increasingly-complex patterns of family instability and physical health in early childhood. The analyses assess whether, and how, the association between family instability and child health varies across a number of family types. We consider several measures of children’s health at age five (overweight/obesity, asthma diagnosis and overall health) and examine to what extent the association between family instability and child health varies across outcomes and depends on the number and timing of any familial transitions. We also explore a number of potential mechanisms through which family instability may affect child health and address the possibility that early child health may lead to, as well as result from, familial relationship instability. The results suggest that familial instability is related to worse child health, particularly among children born to co-resident (married or cohabiting) biological parents. Although continuous marriage among biological parents stands out as the ‘best’ arrangement for child health, there are also important distinctions among the other categories considered that would be missed by only comparing married versus unmarried parent families.
