Office of Population Research [Princeton University]: "Socioeconomic Differences in Mortality among U.S. Adults: Insights into the Hispanic Paradox," by Noreen Goldman and Cassio M. Turra (Working Paper No. 2006-02, 2006, .pdf format, 22p.).

Abstract:

Despite a myriad of studies focused on social disparities in health, surprisingly little is known about SES differentials in mortality among Hispanics in the U.S. This study examines education and income differences in mortality by immigrant status and national origin and explores how ethnic differences in SES gradients in mortality are related to the Hispanic paradox. We use Poisson regression models based on data from the 1989-1994 waves of the National Health Interview Survey, with linked mortality through 1997, to estimate death rates for Hispanics and whites by age, sex and SES. Deaths rates vary significantly (p<0.05) by education and income for whites and for Hispanic subgroups defined by nativity (U.S.-born and foreign-born) and nationality (Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, and other Hispanics). However, with the exception of Puerto Ricans, the effects of education are more modest for Hispanic groups than for whites. The ethnic differences in mortality patterns by income are less notable than those for education. The findings reveal that the mortality advantage for Hispanics is concentrated at lower levels of SES, with little or no advantage at higher levels. We propose several mechanisms related to immigration and assimilation patterns that may underlie these results. The analysis also suggests that, because of the statistical significance of interaction terms between age and other demographic variables in models of mortality, some earlier estimates of ethnic or SES differences in survival are likely to be biased.

Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research [Rostock, Germany]: "On the structural value of children and its implication on intended fertility in Bulgaria," by Christoph Buhler (WP-2006-03, February 2006, .pdf format, 41p.). Links to an abstract and full text are available at:

Abstract:

Personal networks receive increasing recognition as structural determinants of fertility. However, the network perspective also helps to explain personal motivations for having children. Using theories of interpersonal exchange and of the value of children, it is argued that children can substantively alter and improve their parents' social networks. Individuals perceive this potential advantageous development as a structural benefit and consider this value in their reproductive decisions. Data from Bulgaria, collected in 2002, support this argument. The intentions of females and males to have a first or second child are positively influenced by at least one structural value. Women's intentions are promoted by the prospect that a child will bring their parents and relatives closer or will strengthen the bond with the partner. Male's intentions are closely associated with the expectation that a child will improve their security at old age.

Center for Research on Child Wellbeing [Princeton University]: "Abusive Romantic Relationships among Adolescent and Young Adult Mothers," by Suzanne Leaman and Christina Gee (2006-07-FF, February 2006, .pdf format, 43p.).

Abstract:

The associations between intimate partner violence (IPV) and mental health among adolescents and young adults were compared in the current study. The connections among marriage status, Latino heritage and abusive experiences were also analyzed. 672 women including 282 adolescents between the ages of 14 and 19 and 390 young adults aged 20 or 21 participated in the study. Significant correlations were discovered between anxiety and depression symptoms among adolescents while anxiety and IPV, anxiety and depression, depression and IPV were all significantly correlated among young adults. In addition, IPV and marriage status as well as marriage status and Latina heritage were significantly correlated among young adults. No significant findings came from linear or logistic regressions conducted with the adolescent data but, among young adults, linear regressions with IPV as the dependent variable led to significant relationships between IPV and marital status. In addition, logistic regressions indicated significant links in the young adult data between IPV and depression and anxiety symptoms. IPV during adolescence may be a different phenomenon than adult IPV or mental health symptoms may be latent variables that are reported later in life. Prevention programs for adolescents as well as young adults are encouraged.
