Center for Demographic and Family Research [Bowling Green State University] Working Paper: “Changes and Stability among Cohabitations: Trends over Time,” by Karen Benjamin Guzzo (Working Paper 2012-05, March 2012, .pdf format, 41p.).

Abstract:

Cohabitation has become an increasingly common union type and has been extensively studied. However, traditional approaches to documenting cohabitation focus on measures of central tendency or limit the analyses to first premarital cohabitations, obscuring the possibility of substantial variation across and subgroups and more diverse cohabiting circumstances. I expect that the characteristics of cohabiting unions, particularly engagement status and cohabitation number, have become more varied over time, resulting in increased variation in cohabitation duration and outcomes. Constructing six five-year cohabitation cohorts (beginning in 1980) for 20-24 and 25-29 year olds from the 2002 and 2006-2010 cycles of the National Survey of Family Growth, this research shows that although changes in duration and outcomes across cohorts within particular types of cohabitation (same engagement status, cohabitation number, and age group) have been small, there are large differences across cohabitation types. Changes in the composition of cohabiting unions are reflected in the increasing diversity of cohabiting outcomes.

A. “A Very Uneven Road: U.S. Labor Markets in the Past 30 Years,” by Harry J. Holzer and Marek Hlavac (DP 1400-12, March 2012, .pdf format, 51p.).

Abstract:

In this paper we use data from the Current Population Survey to summarize labor market trends in the U.S. over the past 30 years. First we focus on secular trends over the four years (and three cycles) that constitute labor market peaks during this period: 1979, 1989, 2000, and 2007. Then we consider peak-to-trough changes in employment outcomes for each of the four recessions that have occurred in this period, including the Great Recession. Overall we find great unevenness in labor market performance across cycles and across demographic groups. Inequality has widened dramatically and important structural changes have occurred.

Women and/or more-educated workers have gained substantially relative to men and/or the less-educated, while high earners within each group gained relative to others. The Great Recession has hurt all groups but especially young and less-educated men, whose outcomes had already deteriorated over time.

B. “Food Insecurity and Food Access,” by Alessandro Bonanno and Jing Li (DP 1399-12, March 2012, .pdf format, 48p.).

Abstract:

This paper measures the relationship between food access and households’ food adult insecurity using two years of Current Population Survey – Food Security Supplement data, matched with MSA-level data on different food outlets (small grocery stores and convenience stores, medium and large grocery stores, convenience stores associated with gas stations and Wal-Mart Supercenters). Endogeneity of food stores’ location is tested and accounted for to eliminate spurious correlation between household food insecurity status and food access. The results indicate that while medium-large grocery stores and small food stores have a mitigating effect on adult food insecurity, especially among low-income households and households with children, convenience stores attached to gas stations seem to contribute to higher food insecurity levels among low-income households. The presence of Wal-Mart Supercenters seems to have no overall impact on adult food insecurity. Some results point to the company having a modest direct adult food insecurity-easing effect, and a detrimental indirect effect (via a negative impact on the number of other food stores helping reduce food insecurity), suggesting a null net effect of Wal-Mart Supercenters on adult food insecurity.

For the 2011 NHIS, these files will be made available three times: in about September 2011 (with data from the first quarter of 2011), in about December 2011 (with data from the first two quarters of 2011), and in about March 2012 (with data from the first three quarters of 2011). These preliminary microdata files have a limited set of variables. These preliminary microdata files are being produced prior to final data editing and final weighting, to provide early access to the most recent information from NHIS. Differences between estimates
calculated using preliminary data files and final data files are typically less than 0.1 percentage point. Occasionally, due to decisions made during final data editing and weighting, estimates based on preliminary data files may differ by more than 0.3 percentage point from estimates based on final files.

NHIS data users may analyze these files in the RDC, without having to wait for the final annual NHIS microdata files to be released in June, following the end of the data collection year.  Analysts wishing to use the files should follow standard procedures for using the RDC.”

Center for Research on Child Wellbeing [Princeton University] Working Paper: “Redefining Relationships: Countervailing Consequences of Paternal Incarceration for Parenting Quality,” by Kristin Turney and Christopher Wildeman (WP12-06-FF, June 2012, .pdf format, 58p.).

Abstract:

In response to dramatic increases in imprisonment, a burgeoning literature considers the consequences of incarceration for family life, almost always documenting negative consequences. But the effects of incarceration may be more complicated and nuanced and, in this paper, we consider the countervailing consequences of paternal incarceration for both fathers’ and mothers’ parenting. Using longitudinal data from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study and a rigorous research design, we find recent paternal incarceration sharply diminishes the parenting behaviors of residential fathers but not nonresidential fathers. Furthermore, virtually all of the association between incarceration and parenting among residential fathers can be explained by changes in fathers’ relationships with their children’s mothers. The consequences for mothers’ parenting, however, are inconsistent and weak, as recent paternal incarceration is not associated with any measure of maternal parenting across all modeling strategies. Our findings also show recent paternal incarceration sharply increases the probability a mother will repartner, potentially offsetting some losses in the involvement of the biological father while simultaneously leading to greater family complexity. Taken together, the collateral consequences of paternal incarceration for family life are complex and countervailing
