Center for Policy Center [Maxwell School, Syracuse University] Working Paper: “Identification and Estimation of Outcome Response with Heterogeneous Treatment Externalities,” Tiziano Arduini, Eleonora Patacchini, and Edoardo Rainone (WP167, April 2014, .pdf format, 37p.).

Abstract:

This paper studies the identification and estimation of treatment response with heterogeneous spillovers in a network model. We generalize the standard linear-in-means model to allow for multiple groups with between and within-group interactions. We provide a set of identification conditions of peer effects and consider a 2SLS estimation approach. Large sample properties of the proposed estimators are derived. Simulation experiments show that the estimators perform well in finite samples. The model is used to study the effectiveness of policies where peer effects are seen as a mechanism through which the treatments could propagate through the network. When interactions among groups are at work, a shock on a treated group has effects on the non-treated. Our framework allows for quantifying how much of the indirect treatment effect is due to variations in the characteristics of treated peers (treatment contextual effects) and how much is because of variations in peer outcomes (peer effects).

B. “Offshoring, Sourcing Substitution Bias and the Measurement of US Import Prices, Real GDP and Productivity,” by Marshall Reinsdorf and Robert Yuskavage (WP2014-5, April 2014, .pdf format, 40p.).

Abstract:

The decade ending in 2007 was a period of rapid sourcing substitution for manufactured goods consumed in the US. A consider amount of sourcing moved offshore, and sourcing patterns for imports changed to give a large role to new producers in emerging economies. The change in the price paid by the buyer of an item who substitutes an import for local sourcing is out of scope for the US import price index, and the change in the price of an imported item when a new supplier in a different country is substituted for an existing one is also likely to be excluded from the index calculation. Sourcing substitution bias arises in measures of change in import prices, real GPD and productivity when these excluded price changes are systematically different from other price changes. To determine bounds for how large sourcing substitution bias could be, we analyze product-level data on changes in import sourcing patterns between 1997 and 2007. Next, we identify products in the US industry accounts that are used for household consumption and that are supplied by imports. We aggregate CPIs, and combinations of MPI and PPIs that cover these products up to the product group level using weights that reflect household consumption patterns. With some adjustments, the gap between the growth rate of the product group index containing MPIs and the growth rate of a corresponding product group index constructed from CPIs can be used to estimate sourcing substitution bias in an extended import price index that includes offshored items. For the nondurable goods, which were subject to very little sourcing substitution, we find no evidence of bias. For apparel and textile products, which were subject to considerable offshoring, the adjusted growth rate gap is 0.6 percent per year. For durable goods, the adjusted gap is 1.2 percent per year, but the upper bound calculation implies that some of this gap comes from effects other than sourcing substitution. During the period examined, sourcing substitution bias seems to have accounted for a tenth of the reported multifactor productivity growth of the US private business sector.

C. “Defining Disease Episodes and the Effects on the Components of Expenditure Growth,” by Abe Dunn, Eli Liebman, Lindsey Rittmueller, and Adam Shapiro (WP2014-4, April 2014, .pdf format, 31p.).

Abstract:

To better understand productivity and inflation in the health sector, health economists have advocated tracking the cost of treatment by disease over time. However, there are several methods for measuring the cost of treatment, and little work has been done to understand how different approaches affect disease-price inflation. In this paper we compare various methodologies for allocating expenditures to disease episodes and their effect on disease-price inflation for a sample of commercially-insured individuals over the 2003 to 2007 period. We find that the selected allocation method impacts inflation rates, but the annual growth rate stays within the range 2.9 to 3.9 across a variety of methods. The paper highlights various issues and trade-offs that may be useful when selecting among the different approaches.

Center for Family and Demographic Research [Bowling Green State University] Working Paper: “Adverse Childhood Experiences: Separate and Cumulative Effects on Adolescent Health and Emotional Well-Being,” by Kelly Stamper Balistreri and Marta Alvira-Hammond (2014-08, April 2014, .pdf format, 15p.).

Abstract:

Purpose: Adverse childhood experiences (ACE) have been consistently linked in a strong and graded fashion to a host of health problems in later adulthood but few studies have examined the more proximate effect of ACE on health and emotional well-being in adolescence.

Methods: Using logistic regression on the 2011/12 National Survey of Children’s Health, we assessed the separate and cumulative effects of ACE on the health and emotional well-being of US adolescents ages 12 through 17. We also investigated the moderating role of family functioning on ACE’s effect on adolescent health and emotional well-being.

Results: Over half of U.S. youths experienced at least one ACE by adolescence, and given exposure to one adverse experience, they were at greater risk of experiencing others. Economic hardship and experiencing discrimination increased the odds of poor adolescent health, while parental divorce and neighborhood violence increase the odds of adolescent emotional problems. Mental illness in the home increased the risk of both poor adolescent health and emotional problems. Family functioning moderated the negative impact of cumulative ACE on adolescent emotional well-being.

Conclusions: Adolescent well-being has enduring consequences; identifying children with ACE exposure who also have lower-functioning family could also help identify those families at particular risk. Our findings have implications for policy and intervention before at-risk children reach adulthood. Results also highlight the value of assessing multiple measures of health and well-being.

Institute of Behavioral Science [University of Colorado] Working Paper: “Reducing Uncertainty in the American Community Survey through Data-Driven Regionalization,” by Seth E. Spielman and David C. Folch (POP2014-05, April 2014, .pdf format, 23p.).

Abstract:

The American Community Survey (ACS) is the largest US survey of households and is the principal source for neighborhood scale information about the US population and economy. The ACS is used to allocate billions in federal spending and is a critical input to social scientific research in the US. However, estimates from the ACS can be highly unreliable. For example, in over 72% of census tracts the estimated number of children under 5 in poverty has a margin of error greater than the estimate. Uncertainty of this magnitude complicates the use of social data in policy making, research, and governance. This article develops a spatial optimization algorithm that is capable of reducing the margins of error in survey data via the creation of new composite geographies, a process called regionalization. Regionalization is a complex combinatorial problem. Here rather than focusing on the technical aspects of regionalization we demonstrate how to use a purpose built open source regionalization algorithm to post-process survey data in order to reduce the margins of error to some user-specified threshold.

Center for Family and Demographic Research [Bowling Green State University] Working Paper: “The Age-IPV Curve: Changes in Intimate Partner Violence Perpetration During Adolescence and Young Adulthood,” by Wendi L. Johnson, Peggy C. Giordano, Wendy D. Manning, and Monica A. Longmore (2014-07, 2014, .pdf format, 32p.).

Abstract:

Research on intimate partner violence (IPV) has evolved over the last decade with increasing interest in how IPV develops over adolescence and young adulthood. Studies examining patterns of IPV over time have generally focused on victimization with less attention to temporal shifts in perpetration. While it is generally assumed that IPV peaks during young adulthood, this has not been empirically verified and documented. Additionally, prior longitudinal analyses of IPV have focused on identifying trajectories and their accompanying risk factors, with less attention given to within-individual change in IPV experiences across and within relationships. Drawing on five waves of data from the Toledo Adolescent Relationships Study (TARS), we examined patterns of IPV perpetration among a diverse sample of adolescents and young adults (51.1% female, 63.9% non-Hispanic White, 24.6% non-Hispanic Black, 11.5% Hispanic) spanning the ages of 13 – 28 years (N = 1,164). Analyses demonstrate that IPV patterns deviate from the age-crime curve, as women’s IPV involvement increases as their antisocial behavior is decreasing. While traditional behavioral and psychological risk factors accounted for some of the age variation in IPV for men, they did not account for age variations in IPV among women. Relationship risk factors, however, accounted for substantial portions of the age-IPV perpetration relationship for male and female youths. These findings reinforce recent calls for prevention efforts that focus on the development of healthy
relationships.

A. “Mandating Prescription Contraception Coverage: Effects on Contraception Consumption and Preventive Health Services,” by Kerri M. Raissian and Leonard M. Lopoo (DP1421-14, April 2014, .pdf format, 33p.).

Abstract:

While recent national discussions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) made the introduction of mandated contraceptive coverage within health insurance policies seem like a novel idea, it is not new at all. Since the late 1990s, 29 states have mandated that insurance providers include prescription contraceptive supplies and/or services in their coverage. We use state-level policy variation to generate both difference-in-differences and triple difference estimates to determine if women in states with state-level contraception supply or contraception supply and services insurance mandates experienced changes in their utilization of contraception and preventive health care services. We do not find a relationship between these policies and contraception use; however, our results show an increase in the consumption of preventive health services as a result of these health insurance mandates.

B. “Food Assistance During and After the Great Recession in Metropolitan Detroit,” by Scott W. Allard, Sandra K. Danziger, and Maria Wathen (DP1420-14, April 2014, .pdf format, 59p.).

Abstract:

Economic shocks produced by the Great Recession have contributed to rising food insecurity, with 14.7 percent of U.S. households being food insecure in 2009, compared to 11.1 percent in 2007. At the same time, SNAP caseloads increased by nearly 60 percent since 2007 and the program now reaches more than 40 million persons. Using data from the first two waves of the Michigan Recession and Recovery Survey (MRRS), a unique panel survey of a representative sample of working-age adults in the Detroit Metropolitan Area, this project explores three research questions related to the receipt of SNAP among low-income households: How have low-income families in the Detroit Metropolitan Area bundled SNAP with other types of public assistance and help from charitable nonprofits in the wake of the Great Recession? When controlling for economic shocks and respondent characteristics, to what extent is access to local food assistance resources related to receipt of SNAP and charitable nonprofit food assistance? How are receipt of SNAP assistance and economic shocks related to household food shopping behaviors and food security? Several important findings emerge from this project that should be of interest to scholars, policymakers, and advocates. Among them is the finding that food insecurity is quite prevalent among poor and near-poor households in metro Detroit following the Great Recession. Fifty-one percent of households below the federal poverty line were food insecure in the year prior to the Wave 1 survey.
