Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences [University of Washington] Working Paper: “Dyadic data analysis with amen,” by Peter Hoff (Working Paper No. 153, August 2015, .pdf format, 48p.).

Abstract:

Dyadic data on pairs of objects, such as relational or social network data, often exhibit strong statistical dependencies. Certain types of second-order dependencies, such as degree heterogeneity and reciprocity, can be well-represented with additive random effects models. Higher-order dependencies, such as transitivity and stochastic equivalence, can often be represented with multiplicative effcts. The amen package for the R statistical computing environment provides estimation and inference for a class of additive and multiplicative random effects models for ordinal, continuous, binary and other types of dyadic data. The package also provides methods for missing, censored and fixed-rank nomination data, as well as longitudinal dyadic data. This tutorial illustrates the amen package via example statistical analyses of several of these different data types.

Urban Insitute Website: “The Prison Population Forecaster” (August 2015).

“Our Prison Population Forecaster can estimate the effect, by state, of policies that aim to reduce prison admissions and length of stay for the most common types of offenses. The tool currently uses data from 15 states, representing nearly 40 percent of the national prison population, to forecast population trends and project the impact of changes on rates of admission or lengths of stay in prison. Using the tool, we can see that in some states, limiting prison admissions to only new crimes and diverting parole and probation revocations will substantially reduce the number of people behind bars. Other states can stem prison growth by tackling how they address drug and property offenses. Still others may discover that modest reductions in time served for violent offenses are necessary. This forecasting tool paves the way for a more productive conversation about the need for tailored reforms that address the unique drivers of mass incarceration in each jurisdiction.”

University of Wisconsin Institute for Research on Poverty Working Paper: “Income Volatility in U.S. Households with Children: Another Growing Disparity between the Rich and the Poor?” by Pamela A. Morris, Heather D. Hill, Lisa A. Gennetian, Chris Rodrigues, and Sharon Wolf (DP 1429-15, July 2015, .pdf format, 33p.).

Abstract:

In this paper, we sought to document household income volatility as experienced by children over time, as one understudied aspect of household economic circumstances that might contribute to observed socioeconomic differences in children’s achievement. Our analysis of six panels of the nationally representative Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) across a 25-year period reveal that income volatility may be an additional factor contributing to the gap between the achievement of rich and poor children: We find that households with children at the 10th percentile of income have experienced increasing volatility across the last 25 years while their affluent peers at the 90th percentile have experienced declining income volatility. Our sensitivity analyses show that these findings are robust to a number of differing analytic approaches and are not due to the changing racial/ethnic composition of low-income households over this same time period.

Vienna Institute of Demography Working Paper: “Childlessness Trends in Twentieth-Century Europe: Limited Link to Growing Educational Attainment,” by Eva Beaujouan, Zuzanna Brzozowska and Krystof Zeman (VID Working Paper 6/2015, August 2015, .pdf format, 31p.).

Abstract:

Childlessness, a driving force of fertility, has undergone strong variations in 20th-century Europe, and educational attainment has been rising continuously. We analyse how these two factors were related to each other over time. Our study is based on census and largescale survey data from 13 European countries, collected in the Cohort Fertility and Education database. We compare the trends in the share of women childless at age 40+ in the 1916–1965 birth cohorts, by level of education. The results suggest that the changes in the educational composition of the population were only marginally related to the overall variation in childlessness rates. With time, the positive educational gradient in childlessness usually decreased: the differences between women of medium/high education and low educated women diminished. However, the childlessness ratio between highly and medium educated women remained stable in Western and Southern Europe and even slightly increased in the East.

Center for Family and Demographic Research (Bowling Green State University] Working Paper: “A Decade Of Change: Measuring The Extent, Depth And Severity of Food Insecurity,” by Kelly Stamper Balistreri (Working Paper No. 2015-24, 2015, .pdf format, 22p.).

Abstract:

Rates of food insecurity in the U.S. have been rising since 2000 spiking with the onset of the Great Recession in 2008, and have remained essentially unchanged since then. Largely ignored are examinations of the depth and severity of food insecurity as well as a more thorough descriptive examination of the racial and ethnic patterns of food insecurity among low-income populations. Food security is typically measured with a dichotomous indicator which fails to capture the full range of information available included in the Current Population Survey (CPS) Food Security Supplement (FSS). This study employs a series of measures adapted from the literature on poverty to examine the depth and severity of food insecurity across the decade by race and ethnicity among low-income households with and without children. Using multiple years of the FSS (2001-2003 N=95,147 households; 2006-2008 N= 83,771 households; 2013 N= 84,861 households) this study finds that while prevalence of food insecurity is higher among low-income households with children throughout the time period, the most rapid increases in the prevalence, depth and severity of food insecurity are found among low-income households without children. Non-Hispanic black households with and without children are at the most disadvantaged among low-income populations. Non-Hispanic white households with and without children have lower prevalence rates but steeper increases in the depth and severity of food insecurity throughout the decade.
