University of Wisconsin Center for Demography and Ecology Working Paper: “Age, Sex, and Race Effects in Anchoring Vignette Studies: Methodological and Empirical Contributions,” by Hanna Grol-Prokopczyk (Working Paper 2010-18, 2011, .pdf format, 38p.).

Abstract:

In the past decade, anchoring vignettes have become an increasingly popular tool for identifying and correcting for group differences in use of subjective ordered response categories. However, existing techniques to maximize response consistency (the use of the same standards for self-ratings as for vignette-ratings), which center on matching vignette characters’ demographic characteristics to respondents’ own characteristics, appear at times to be ineffective or to pose interpretive difficulties. For example, respondents often appear to neglect instructions to treat vignette characters as age peers. Furthermore, when vignette characters are depicted as have the same sex as the respondent, interpretation of observed sex differences in rating style is rendered problematic. This paper applies two experimental manipulations to a national sample (n=1,765) to clarify best practices for enhancing response consistency. First, a comparison of ratings of same- and opposite-sex vignette characters suggests that, with occasional and avoidable exceptions, the sex of the respondent rather than the sex of the vignette character drives observed sex differences in rating style. Second, an analysis of two methods of highlighting vignette characters’ age shows that both yield better response consistency than previous, less prominent means. Implications for interpretation and design of anchoring vignette studies are discussed. In addition to methodological contributions, this paper represents the first fielding of general health vignettes to a national sample. Findings show significant differences in health-rating style across racial/ethnic groups, educational categories, and sex. Significant racial/ethnic differences in styles of rating political efficacy are also observed. These findings underscore the incomparability of unadjusted subjective self-ratings across demographic groups.

A. “Economic Determinants of Divorce among Dual-Earner Couples: Jews in Israel,” by Liat Raz-Yurovich (WP-2011-008, May 2011, .pdf format, 38p.).

Abstract:

How relevant are the available theoretical perspectives on marriage dissolution for understanding modern family forms? By employing a unique set of longitudinal register-based data for the Jewish population in Israel, this study seeks to find out which of the major theoretical perspectives on economic determinants of divorce best explains the transition to divorce among dual-earner couples. Our findings appear to support theories that assert asymmetry and power relations between the spouses. The women’s economic independence hypothesis is not confirmed by our results, which indicate that the wife’s earnings do not affect divorce risk. In line with theories of income pooling, higher shared salaries are found to increase marital stability. Nonetheless, our results demonstrate that the basic assumption of symmetry between the spouses in these theories does not hold. Although employment stability for both spouses appears to reduce divorce risk, only the husband’s salary is shown to negatively affect the odds of divorce, and only the wife’s working hours and sector of employment are found to positively affect marriage instability. Moreover, couples in which the wife earns as much as or more than the husband are found to have the highest divorce risk.

B. “Are step-parents always evil? Parental death, remarriage, and child survival in demographically saturated Krummhorn (1720-1859) and expanding Québec (1670-1750),” by Kai Willfuhr and Alain Gagnon (WP-2011-007, May 2011, .pdf format, 36p.).

Abstract:

Parental death precipitates a cascade of events leading to more or less detrimental exposures, from the sudden and dramatic interruption of parental care through the cohabitation with step parents and siblings in a recomposed family. This paper compares the effect of early parental loss on the survival of children in the past in the Krummhorn region of East Frisia (Germany) and in the French Canadians settlers of the Saint-Lawrence Valley (Quebec, Canada). The Krummhorn region was characterized by a saturated habitat with little expansion possibilities, while the opportunities for establishing a new family were virtually unlimited for the French Canadian settlers. These widely dissimilar environmental and socio-economic conditions led to contrasted impacts of early parental loss. Event history analyses with time-varying specification of family structure are used on a sample of 7,077 boys and 6,906 girls born between 1720 and 1859 in the Krummhörn region and 31,490 boys and 33,109 boys whose parents married between 1670 and 1750 in Québec. Results indicate that in both populations parental loss is associated with increased infant and child mortality. Maternal loss has a universal and consistent effect for both sexes, while the impact of paternal loss is less easy to establish and to interpret. The effect of the remarriage of the surviving spouse is population-specific: Mother’s remarriage has no effect in Krummhorn, while children in Quebec tended to benefit from the mother’s remarriage. In contrast, father’s remarriage in Krummhorn reduced dramatically the survival chances of the children born from his former marriage, while such effect was not seen for Quebec. These population-specific effects appear to be driven by availability of resources and call into question the universality of the so-called “Cinderella” effect.

Centre d’Etudes de Populations, de Pauvreté et de Politiques Socio-Economiques / International Network for Studies in Technology, Environment, Alternatives, Development [Differdange, Luxembourg] Working Paper: CEPS/INSTEAD has recently added the following working paper “Ordinal Variables and the Measurement of Polarization,” by Alessio Fusco and Jacques Silber (Working Paper No 2011-33, May 2011, .pdf format, 29p.).

Abstract:

This paper aims at proposing measures of polarization for the distribution of a variable when information on the latter is only ordinal. The measures proposed are borrowed from the recent literature on the measurement of segregation. An empirical illustration is given, based on the European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) for the year 2008. The ordinal variable refers to the ‘ability to make ends meet’ and polarization is measured between groups defined by the citizenship of the household member who answered the household questionnaire. Results show that Luxembourg and Estonia have the highest degree of polarization whereas Cyprus, Ireland and the United Kingdom display the lowest degree.
