Center for Research on Child Wellbeing [Princeton University] Working Paper: “Positive, Negative, or Null? The Effects of Maternal Incarceration on Children’s Behavioral Problems,” by Christopher Wildeman and Kristin Turney (WP12-22-FF, November 2012, .pdf format, 40p.).

Abstract:

As maternal incarceration may help, harm, or have no effect on child wellbeing, increases in the risk of maternal imprisonment are relevant to scholars interested in both mass imprisonment and the forces that shape inequalities in child wellbeing. Unfortunately, with the exception of a few rigorous studies on educational and birth outcomes, little research has considered the effect of maternal incarceration on child wellbeing after adjusting for differences between children who do and do not experience maternal incarceration. We use data from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study to consider the effects of maternal incarceration on 21 caregiver- and teacher-reported behavioral problems among nine-year-old children. Results show that, after adjusting for confounders, maternal incarceration is positively and significantly associated with just 1 behavioral problem and negatively and significantly associated with just 1 behavioral problem. In models considering both maternal and paternal incarceration, compared to children with neither parent incarcerated, children with only a father incarcerated have significantly more behavioral problems on 17 of 21 outcomes and children with only a mother incarcerated have significantly more behavioral problems on 1 of 21 outcomes. Taken together, our results suggest the average effects of maternal incarceration on children’s behavioral problems are null.

Center for Family and Demographic Research [Bowling Green State University] Working Paper: “Hegemonic and Alternative Masculinities in Fatherhood,” by J. Bart Stykes (2012-16, December 2012, .pdf format, 38p.).

Abstract:

Current discussions of fatherhood suggest generativity is the hegemonic form of masculinity whereas fathers emphasizing providership or caregiving adhere to alternative masculinities. In this study, I apply critical masculinity and feminist perspectives to improve mainstream sociological discussions of masculinity in fatherhood. Specifically, I extract three forms of masculinity from the Fragile Families baseline data. I find evidence that generative masculinity is the hegemonic, ideal form of masculinity in fathering. Meanwhile, marginalized men are the most heterogeneous group of fathers. Traditional men report lower levels of education but higher personal earnings compared to generative men. Overall, results support Connell’s (1987) theoretical framework as generative men, on average, are more likely to occupy “advantaged” social positions across multiple domains. This study uses a creative methodological approach and demonstrates that quantitative data can inform nuanced discussions of masculinities among a diverse sample of men.

Center for Policy Research [Maxwell School, Syracuse University] Working Paper: “Estimating and Forecasting With A Dynamic Spatial Panel Data Model,” by Badi H. Baltagi, Bernard Fingleton and Alain Pirotte (WP149, December 2012, .pdf format, 26p.).

Abstract:

This paper focuses on the estimation and predictive performance of several estimators for the dynamic and autoregressive spatial lag panel data model with spatially correlated disturbances. In the spirit of Arellano and Bond (1991) and Mutl (2006), a dynamic spatial GMM estimator is proposed based on Kapoor, Kelejian and Prucha (2007) for the Spatial AutoRegressive (SAR) error model. The main idea is to mix non-spatial and spatial instruments to obtain consistent estimates of the parameters. Then, a linear predictor of this spatial dynamic model is derived. Using Monte Carlo simulations, we compare the performance of the GMM spatial estimator to that of spatial and non-spatial estimators and illustrate our approach with an application to new economic geography.

Research Program in Development Studies [Princeton University] Working Paper: “How much international variation in child height can sanitation explain?” by Dean Spiers (December 2012, .pdf format, 50p.).

Abstract:

Physical height is an important economic variable reflecting health and human capital. Puzzlingly, however, differences in average height across developing countries are not well explained by di erences in wealth. In particular, children in India are shorter, on average, than children in Africa who are poorer, on average, a paradox which is often called “the Asian enigma.” The primary contribution of this paper is to document that cross-country variation in sanitation statistically explains a large and important fraction of international height differences. Over a billion people worldwide – and more than half of Indian households – defecate openly without using a toilet or latrine, introducing germs into the environment that cause disease and stunt children’s growth. I apply three complementary empirical strategies to Demographic and Health Survey data to identify the fraction due to sanitation: country-level regressions using collapsed DHS surveys; within-country analysis of di erences between India’s first and second DHS surveys; and econometric decomposition of the India-Africa height difference in child-level data. Open defecation, which is exceptionally widespread in India, accounts for much of the excess stunting in India.
