WORKING PAPERS:

University of Wisconsin Center for Demography and Ecology:

A. "Longevity, Dependence and Long-Term Care Costs: The Case of Spain," by Malena Monteverde (WP 2006-02, 2006, .pdf format, 22p.).

Abstract:

Objectives: We combine data on unit costs of services with mortality and morbidity information of the Spanish population aged 65 and over to estimate individual expected costs for long-term care services (CLTC).

Methods: Using data from National Disability, Deficiency and Health Condition Survey (INE, 1999) and mortality statistics from Spain (INE, 2002), we estimate duration in dependence status by using Sullivan's method. Generational trends of prevalence of disability were analyzed by linearly adjusting across cohort groups.

Results: We find that CLTC for women is about 70% higher than for men aged 65 and over. We also show that a care system based exclusively on in-home care generates costs that are twice as high as those borne in a system that combines in-home care with care in daily centers and residential homes. Sensitivity analyses suggest that even under a regime of uniform decline in disability rates on the order of 1.2% annually, no reductions in individual expected costs are obtained.

Discussion: Our calculations of costs rely on approximations of the expected duration of dependence by levels of severity. Despite the fact that these estimates are subject to some uncertainty, our results are robust. Even discounting for a margin of error, these estimates unequivocally suggest that in Spain, as in other Western European countries, we should expect large increases in the magnitude of costs of long-term care and that rearrangement of social resources is urgently required.

B. "The Class of 1957 in their Mid-60s: A First Look," edited by Robert M. Hauser and Carol L. Roan (WP 2006-03, 2006, .pdf format, 111p.).

Abstract:

This paper presents the results from the latest round of data collection for the nearly 50 year-old Wisconsin Longitudinal Study (WLS). The results primarily update the lives of the graduates since our last interviews with them in 1993. Thus those who are new to WLS should also read the report on the overview and findings from our previous round of interviews and surveys. The findings presented in this report are the results of a collaboration of a research team that over time has involved many hundreds of researchers, students and interviewers. However our most important collaboration has been with our WLS participants. Over the years we have not only maintained ties with most of the surviving respondents of the original class of '57 sample, we have also talked with their siblings, their spouses and their sibling's spouses. We are extremely grateful for their time, energy, and continued enthusiasm for this project.

Penn State Population Research Institute: "The Changing Relationship between Parents' Education and Their Time with Children," by Satvika Chalasani (WP 06-03, April 2006, .pdf format, 45p.).

Abstract:

I examine differences based on parents' education, in the time that American parents spend with their children, and how these differences have changed between 1985 and 2003. I also examine educational differences in the ratio of mothers' child time to fathers' child time. The results indicate that better educated parents used to and continue to spend more time with their children than the less educated. Although parents at all levels of education have increased their time with children, the better educated have made relatively larger gains. Further, the ratio of mothers' to fathers' child time was and continues to be lower for the better educated than the less educated. Finally, I find that the gap in parent-child time between mothers and fathers has narrowed at every education level between 1985 and 2003.

Yale University Economic Growth Center: "Do Population Control Policies Induce More Human Capital Investment? Twins, Birthweight, and China's 'One Child' Policy," by Mark R. Rosenzweig and Junsen Zhang (Discussion Paper 933, March 2006, .pdf format, p.).

Abstract:

In this paper we use a new data set describing households with and without twin children in China to quantify the trade-off between the quality and quantity of children using the incidence of twins that for the first time takes into account effects associated with the lower birthweight and closer-spacing of twins compared to singleton births. We show that examining the effects of twinning by birth order, net of the effects stemming from the birthweight deficit of twins, can provide upper and lower bounds on the trade-off between family size and average child quality. Our estimates indicate that, at least in one area of China, an extra child at parity one or at parity two, net of birthweight effects, significantly decreases the schooling progress, the expected college enrollment, grades in school and the assessed health of all children in the family. We also show that estimates of the effects of twinning at higher parities on the outcomes of older children in prior studies do not identify family size effects but are confounded by inter-child allocation effects because of the birthweight deficit of twins. Despite the evident significant trade-off between number of children and child quality in China, however, the findings suggest that the contribution of the one-child policy in China to the development of its human capital was modest.

Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER) [University of Essex, Colchester, UK]. "Infusing Time Diary Evidence into Panel Data: An exercise in calibrating time-use estimates for the BHPS (British Household Panel Survey)," by Man Yee Kan, and Jonathan Gershun (WP 2006-19, April 2006, .pdf format, 19p.).

Abstract:

In this paper, we calibrate a set of time use variables for a long-running panel survey (the British Household Panel Survey, BHPS, 1994 - 2004) from evidence derived from a smaller scale panel survey that collected time use information by both the survey method and the diary method from the same respondents (the Home On-line Study, HoL, 1999 - 2001). Past research has suggested that the time diary method produces more accurate and reliable measures of time use than the survey approach. The diary approach, however, usually has a low response rate and is not practicable for a large-scale panel study like the BHPS. On the other hand, direct questioning in survey interviews is a relatively flexible approach to collect time use data. We therefore propose a method to combine the strengths of the survey approach and the diary method to produce time use data. The survey part of the HoL study shares the same questionnaire-derived time-use predictor variables with the BHPS. We use regression of the predictors on the time diary data in the HoL study to calibrate time use in the BHPS by multiplying the resulting regression coefficients with the same predictor variables in the BHPS. Then we get a calibrated index of time-use patterns based on BHPS questionnaire items. The calibrated time use variables cover all major categories of daily activities and are available in Wave 4 (1994) to Wave 14 (2004) of the BHPS. They are useful resources for the study of time use practices and the life course.

G. "NIH National Graduate Student Research Festival," to be held in Bethesda, Maryland Oct. 12-13, 2006. "The NIH National Graduate Student Research Festival (NGSRF) is a two-day event to be held on the NIH campus. The purpose of the festival is to bring together potential postdoctoral candidates and NIH investigators as a means of recruiting these candidates into NIH laboratories. The target group for participation is outstanding senior-level graduate students from across the country. The candidates will be selected from a national search based on abstract submissions, CVs, and a letter of recommendation from their graduate advisor. These candidates will showcase their talents and science to the NIH community through poster sessions. The research, resources, and facilities of the NIH will be highlighted in plenary sessions to be held during the festival. Group tours and individual interviews between the candidate and NIH investigators will also be conducted. By bringing the candidates to the NIH, this festival will allow NIH investigators to interview numerous potential postdoctoral fellows." For more information see:
