A. "Illegal Migration from Mexico to the United States," by Gordon H. Hanson (Working Paper No. w12141, April 2006, .pdf format, 70p.).

Abstract:

In this paper, I selectively review recent literature on illegal migration from Mexico to the United States. I begin by discussing methods for estimating stocks and flows of illegal migrants. While there is uncertainty about the size of the unauthorized population, new data sources make it possible to examine the composition of legal and illegal populations and the time-series covariates of illegal labor flows. I then consider the supply of and demand for illegal migrants. Wage differentials between the United States and Mexico are hardly a new phenomenon, yet illegal migration from Mexico did not reach high levels until recently. An increase in the relative size of Mexico's working-age population, greater volatility in U.S.-Mexico relative wages, and changes in U.S. immigration policies are all candidate explanations for increasing labor flows from Mexico. Finally, I consider policies that regulate the cross-border flow of illegal migrants. While U.S. laws mandate that authorities prevent illegal entry and punish firms that hire unauthorized immigrants, these laws are imperfectly enforced. Lax enforcement may reflect political pressure by employers and other interests that favor open borders.

B. "Abortion and Selection," by Elizabeth Oltmans Ananat, Jonathan Gruber, Phillip B. Levine, and Douglas Staiger (Working Paper No. w12150, April 2006, .pdf format, 45p.).

Abstract:

The introduction of legalized abortion in the early 1970s led to dramatic changes in fertility behavior. Some research has suggested as well that there were important impacts on cohort outcomes, but this literature has been limited and controversial. In this paper, we provide a framework for understanding the mechanisms through which abortion access affects cohort outcomes, and use that framework to both address inconsistent past methodological approaches, and provide evidence on the long-run impact on cohort characteristics. Our results provide convincing evidence that abortion legalization altered young adult outcomes through selection. In particular, we find evidence that lower costs of abortion led to improved outcomes in the birth cohort in the form of an increased likelihood of college graduation, lower rates of welfare use, and lower odds of being a single parent. We also find that our empirical innovations do not substantially alter earlier results regarding the relationship between abortion and crime, although most of that relationship appears to reflect cohort size effects rather than selection.

C. "Does Child Abuse Cause Crime?" by Janet Currie and Erdal Tekin (Working Paper No. w12171, April 2006, .pdf format, 61p.).

Abstract:

Child maltreatment, which includes both child abuse and child neglect, is a major social problem. This paper focuses on measuring the effects of child maltreatment on crime using data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health). We focus on crime because it is one of the most socially costly potential outcomes of maltreatment, and because the proposed mechanisms linking maltreatment and crime are relatively well elucidated in the literature. Our work addresses many limitations of the existing literature on child maltreatment. First, we use a large national sample, and investigate different types of abuse in a similar framework. Second, we pay careful attention to identifying the causal impact of abuse, by using a variety of statistical methods that make differing assumptions. These methods include: Ordinary Least Squares (OLS), propensity score matching estimators, and twin fixed effects. Finally, we examine the extent to which the effects of maltreatment vary with socio-economic status (SES), gender, and the severity of the maltreatment. We find that maltreatment approximately doubles the probability of engaging in many types of crime. Low SES children are both more likely to be mistreated and suffer more damaging effects. Boys are at greater risk than girls, at least in terms of increased propensity to commit crime. Sexual abuse appears to have the largest negative effects, perhaps justifying the emphasis on this type of abuse in the literature. Finally, the probability of engaging in crime increases with the experience of multiple forms of maltreatment as well as the experience of Child Protective Services (CPS) investigation.

CONFERENCES/CALLS FOR PAPERS:

Penn State 14th Annual Symposium on Family Issues: Caring and Exchange Within and Across Generations, to be held at University Park, Pennsylvania, Oct. 5-6 2006. "Intergenerational dependent care will be the focus of Penn State's 14th annual Symposium on Family Issues, October 5-6, 2006. "Caring and Exchange Within and Across Generations" will be addressed by 16 of the top scholars in gerontology, sociology, economics, demography, and human development from major institutions.  The symposium is innovative for the integration of perspectives from multiple social sciences as well as for addressing policy implications. The intent of the symposium is to consider factors that account for variation and change in relationships within and among generations, the strengths and weaknesses of existing information that can be used to understand change in inter- and intra-generational relationships, and implications for social policies, in light of the dramatic changes in family composition.  Lead speakers will include Kathleen McGarry (Economics, UCLA), Donald Cox (Economics, Boston College), Karl Pillemer (Human Development, Cornell), and Steven Nock (Sociology, U. of Virginia)."
