Medicaid trends are related to the state of the nation's economy, and as the economy has strengthened, increases in enrollment and spending have slowed. Rising enrollment and health care inflation produced most of Medicaid's spending increases. Even with a stronger economy, however, Medicaid's enrollment pressures remain due to demographic trends and continued declines in employer-sponsored insurance."

WORKING PAPERS:

Carolina Population Center MEASURE Evaluation: "Community-Level Influences on Early Sexual Initiation in Nigeria," by Sohail Agha, Ronan Van Rossem, and Augustine Ankomah (WP 06-88, January 2006, .pdf format, 15p.).

Abstract:

Using national survey data from Nigeria, this study examines individual and community-level determinants of early sexual initiation. Community-level factors exercise important effects on the early onset of sexual initiation. Consistent with the social capital hypothesis, young people living in communities that are more knowledgeable about HIV/AIDS transmission and prevention, communities that are open to receiving HIV/AIDS information, and communities that support condom use as well as family planning are more likely to delay sexual initiation than others. The disadvantages associated with living in a community that is less well informed, less supportive of condom use and less open to receiving information on HIV/AIDS are significantly higher for women. Women who live in communities where attitudes about reproductive health are not positive or where there is lack of social support for condom use are at a heightened risk of early sexual initiation.

Princeton Center for Research on Child Wellbeing: "Father Involvement Ideals and the Union Trajectories of Unmarried Parents," by Bryndl Hohmann-Marriott (WP 2006-19-FF, June 2006, .pdf format, 27p.).

Abstract:

The co-parental dynamic arising from the partners' beliefs about father involvement may impact the relationship of unmarried couples as they make the transition to parenthood. Using the first two waves of the Fragile Families survey, this paper investigates the two partners' beliefs about the importance of fathers' caregiving. When partners do not believe that fathers' caregiving is important, they are more likely to end their union. Unmarried partners are less likely to marry if the mother does not believe that fathers' caregiving is very important. Together, these findings suggest that when parents value fathers' day-to-day, hands-on involvement, they have a stronger commitment to their relationship.
