Center for Research on Child Wellbeing [Princeton University] Working Paper: “Detrimental for Some? The Heterogeneous Effects of Maternal Incarceration on Child Wellbeing,” by Kristin Turney and Christopher Wildeman (WP14-02-FF, January 2014, .pdf format, 48p.).

Abstract:

We use data from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study (N = 3,197) to consider the average and heterogeneous effects of maternal incarceration on nine-year-old children’s internalizing problem behaviors, externalizing problem behaviors, PPVT scores, and early juvenile delinquency. We find that maternal incarceration has no average effect on measures of child wellbeing, consistent with previous research, but that effects are highly heterogeneous by the propensity to experience maternal incarceration. For children whose mothers are least likely to experience incarceration, the effects of maternal incarceration are pronounced, corresponding to between two-fifths and three-fifths of a standard deviation difference from their counterparts without incarcerated mothers. These findings suggest that the consequences of maternal incarceration vary substantially across social contexts.

A. “The Protective Effect of High Body Mass on Mortality Risk. Obesity Paradox or Data Artifact?” by Ryan K. Masters (POP2013-07, December 2013, .pdf format, 29p.).

Abstract:

Background: An ‘obesity paradoxa is often reported in mortality analyses, wherein high body mass is found to confer a survival advantage at older ages. Some researchers have cautioned that obesity paradoxes should be met with skepticism because age-specific estimates of the obesity-mortality association are likely confounded by (1) reverse causality and/or (2) age-related selection processes. We test the intuitions behind these claims by analyzing the age-specific associations between high body mass and mortality risk in two U.S. samples.

Methods & Findings: The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 1988-1994, 1999-2004 and the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) 1986-2004 were prospectively linked to individual mortality records at the National Death Index (NDI) through December 31, 2006. Respondents were aged 25 to 84 years at survey and survival was followed for up to 21 years between ages 26 and 95. We examined all-cause mortality risk by body mass index (BMI), BMI 10 years prior to survey, and waist-to-thigh ratio (WTR). Cause-specific (circulatory diseases and accidents) mortality risk was also assessed by BMI. Results indicate that ‘obesity paradoxes’ are likely data artifacts that reflect biased estimates from age-related selection effects.

Conclusion: The obesity paradox likely reflects confounding from age-related and health-related selection biases. The idea that high body mass confers a survival advantage at older ages is questionable. More likely, a positive association between high body mass and all-cause mortality risk exists at all ages.

B. “Long-Term Trends in Adult Mortality for U.S. Blacks and Whites: An Examination of Period- and Cohort-Based Changes,” by Dan Miller Runfola, Ryan K. Masters, Robert A. Hummer, Daniel A. Powers, Audrey Beck, Shih-Fan Lin, and Brian Karl Finch (POP2013-06, December 2013, .pdf format, 49p.).

Abstract:

Black-white differences in U.S. adult mortality narrowed over the past five decades, but it’s unclear whether this narrowing unfolded on a period or cohort basis. The distinction has important implications for understanding the socioeconomic, public health, lifestyle, and medical mechanisms responsible for this narrowing. We use data from 1959 to 2009 and age-periodcohort models to examine period- and cohort-based changes in adult mortality for U.S. blacks and whites. We do so for all-cause mortality among persons aged 15-74, as well as for several underlying causes of death more pertinent for specific age groups. We find clear patterns of cohort-based reductions in mortality for both black and white men and women. Recent cohortbased reductions in heart disease, stroke, lung cancer, female breast cancer, and other cancer mortality have been substantial, and, save for breast cancer, especially pronounced for blacks. Period-based changes have also occurred and are especially pronounced for some causes of death. Period-based reductions in blacks’ and whites’ heart disease and stroke mortality are particularly impressive, as are recent period-based reductions in young men’s and women’s mortality from infectious diseases and homicide. These recent period changes are more pronounced among blacks. The substantial cohort-based trends in chronic disease mortality and recent period-based reductions for some causes of death suggest continuing slow closure of the black-white mortality gap. However, we also uncover troubling signs of recent cohort-based increases in heart disease mortality for both blacks and whites.

A. “Internal and International Mobility as Adaptation to Climatic Variability in Contemporary Mexico: Evidence from the Integration of Census Data with Satellite Imagery,” by Dan Miller Runfola, Fernando Riosmena, Stefan Leyk, Lori Hunter, and Raphael Nawrotzki (POP2013-05, December 2013, .pdf format, 30p.).

Abstract:

Both internal and international migration are strategies used by rural Mexican households to cope with, or adapt to, weather events, climatic variability, and economic restructuring. Yet prior studies on ‘environmental migration’ in this context have either not discriminated between internal and international movement or have focused exclusively on international movement. In addition, much prior work relied on very coarse spatial scales to operationalize the natural environment. To overcome this limitation, we use fine-grain rainfall estimates derived from NASA’s Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite. The rainfall estimates are combined with other Mexican climate data as well as Population and Agricultural Census information to examine associations between environmental changes and municipal rates of domestic and international migration 2005-2010. Our findings suggest that municipal-level rainfall deficits relative to historical levels are an important predictor of both international and domestic migration, especially in areas dependent on seasonal rainfall for crop productivity. Although our results do not negate results of prior studies using coarse spatial resolution, they offer a more spatially nuanced examination of migration as related to social and environmental
vulnerability.

B. “The Influence of Internal Migration on Exposure to Extreme Weather Events in Mexico,” by Dan Miller Runfola, Patricia Romero-Lankao, Leiwen Jiang, Lori Hunter, Raphael Nawrotzki and Landy Sanchez (POP2013-04, December 2013, .pdf format, 9p.).

Abstract:

Between 2005 and 2010, 6.3 million migrants (approximately 6% of the population) moved domestically within Mexico, predominantly to urban locations. These shifts – both in migratory streams and resulting population distribution – have potential implications for the exposure of populations to natural disasters. We ask: How have recent migratory patterns in Mexico influenced exposure to extreme weather events? To examine this question, we use census micro-data in conjunction with recorded data on natural disaster events. The populations exposed to extreme weather events are first calculated based on observed disasters and demographic change between 2005 and 2010. This is compared to a hypothetical scenario with no migration between 2005 and 2010 to identify the contribution of migration to exposure both in the aggregate and for specific municipalities within Mexico. The results demonstrate that, while migration has decreased overall exposure within Mexico, this influence is highly localized in select municipalities – especially of Mexico City and Monterrey.

C. “Parents Shaping Children’s Education: School Selection in the United States,” by Elizabeth Lawrence and Stefanie Mollborn (POP2013-03, December 2013, .pdf format, 37p.).

Abstract:

The unequal sorting of children into schools in the United States is a major mechanism of class reproduction, yet families’ school choice has been understudied. This study explores how families choose their children’s schools at kindergarten, the start of the school transition. We use nationally representative data from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study-Birth Cohort (ECLS-B) to model whether a parent seeks information about their child’s school, enrolls their child in a school other than the assigned public school, or moves to a location so that a child can attend a certain school. Results indicate a stratified system of school selection for kindergarten, with privileged families opting for elite strategies to secure educational advantages. While Black families show an increased likelihood of seeking information and enrollment in a non-assigned public school, White families are more likely to use the resource-intensive option of choosing their residential location to access a particular school. Families of higher socioeconomic status enroll their children in private schools. Policies seeking to shape the school choice process should be informed by the inherent inequalities existing within it and the disparate social forces that shape these inequalities.

D. “Rainfall Trends, Variability and U.S. Migration from Rural Mexico: Evidence from the 2010 Mexican Census,” by Fernando Riosmena, Raphael J. Nawrotzki, and Lori M. Hunter (POP2013-02, December 2013, .pdf format, 53p.).

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Prior studies showing that drought is (positively) associated with Mexico U.S. migration looked at periods with historically low rainfall. Though this research informs on the long term potential effects of climate change, it may exaggerate its immediate and medium run effects.

OBJECTIVE: We examine the association between rainfall variability, precipitation tends, and U.S. migration from rural Mexico during 2005 2009, a period with above-average precipitation, a more rigorous test of the climate-migration nexus.

METHODS: We use multilevel models on microdata and municipal-level characteristics from the 2010 Mexican census and state-level precipitation.

RESULTS: In contrast to previous research we find that, in states experiencing relative precipitation declines, these rainfall deficits are associated with lower migration. Yet, we find two instances in which lower rainfall is indeed associated with higher migration in these same states. First, low relative precipitation during the secondary maize growing season implied higher emigration levels. Second, rainfall deficits were associated with U.S.-bound migration out of municipalities with stronger migratory traditions.

CONCLUSIONS: We argue that international migration is thus a more common adaptation strategy to climate variability only in times of particularly dire or extended droughts, or out of places with well-established migrant networks.

COMMENTS: Our results question the notion that climate change will displace a large number of rural Mexicans: only more extreme climatic variability may displace individuals, though future research should look into whether this kind of migration is temporary. Finally, climate migration projections should also consider the evolution of migrant networks.
