A. "New Evidence on Gender Difference in Promotion Rates: An Empirical Analysis of a Sample of New Hires," by Francine D. Blau and Jed DeVaro (w12321, June 2006, .pdf format, 40p.).

Abstract:

Using a large sample of establishments drawn from the Multi-City Study of Urban Inequality (MCSUI) employer survey, we study gender differences in promotion rates and in the wage gains attached to promotions. Several unique features of our data distinguish our analysis from the previous literature on this topic. First, we have information on the wage increases attached to promotions, and relatively few studies on gender differences have considered promotions and wage increases together. Second, our data include job-specific worker performance ratings, allowing us to control for performance and ability more precisely than through commonly-used skill indicators such as educational attainment or tenure. Third, in addition to standard information on occupation and industry, we have data on a number of other firm characteristics, enabling us to control for these variables while still relying on a broad, representative sample, as opposed to a single firm or a similarly narrowly-defined population. Our results indicate that women have lower probabilities of promotion and expected promotion than do men but that there is essentially no gender difference in wage growth with or without promotions.

B. " Federal Policy and the Rise in Disability Enrollment: Evidence for the VA's Disability Program," by Mark Duggan, Robert Rosenheck, and Perry Singleton (w12323, June 2006, .pdf format, 34p.).

Abstract:

The fraction of non-elderly adults in the U.S. receiving disability benefits from the federal SSDI and/or SSI programs increased from 3.2 to 5.9 percent during the last two decades. Determining how much of this increase was caused by changes in policy versus other factors is difficult given that the programs are essentially uniform nationwide. In this study, we shed light on this issue by investigating the impact of a discrete change in the federal government's third largest disability program, the Department of Veterans Affairs' Disability Compensation (DC) program. In July of 2001, there was an expansion in the medical eligibility criteria for this program that applied only to Vietnam veterans. This change was motivated by an Institute of Medicine study, which linked exposure to Agent Orange and other herbicides used by the U.S. military in Vietnam, to the onset of diabetes. Using veterans who served shortly before and after the Vietnam War as our comparison group, we estimate that this policy change increased DC enrollment by 6.7 percentage points among Vietnam veterans. An additional 2.7 percent experienced an increase in their monthly DC benefit as a result of this policy change. The expanded eligibility criteria for Vietnam veterans can explain 60 percent of the recent acceleration in DC enrollment growth and increased the present value of DC spending by more than $30 billion. Our results further indicate that the policy change was responsible for an increase in the responsiveness of the program to local economic conditions. Our findings strongly suggest that even relatively narrow changes in the eligibility criteria for federal disability programs can have a powerful effect on program enrollment and expenditures.

C. "The Effect of Female Education on Fertility and Infant Health: Evidence from School Entry Policies Using Exact Date of Birth," by Justin McCrary and Heather Royer (w12329, June 2006, .pdf format, 43p.).

Abstract:

This paper uses age-at-school-entry policies to identify the effect of female education on fertility and infant health. We focus on sharp contrasts in schooling, fertility, and infant health between women born just before and after the school entry date. School entry policies affect female education and the quality of a woman's mate and have generally small, but possibly heterogeneous, effects on fertility and infant health. We argue that school entry policies manipulate primarily the education of young women at risk of dropping out of school.

D. "Hospital Competition, Managed Care and Mortality After Hospitalization for Medical Conditions: Evidence From Three States," by Jose J. Escarce, Arvind K. Jain, and Jeannette Rogowski (w12335, June 2006, .pdf format, 43p.).

Abstract:

This study assessed the effect of hospital competition and HMO penetration on mortality after hospitalization for six medical conditions in California, New York, and Wisconsin. We used linked hospital discharge and vital statistics data to study adults hospitalized for myocardial infarction, hip fracture, stroke, gastrointestinal hemorrhage, congestive heart failure, or diabetes. We estimated logistic regression models with death within 30 days of admission as the dependent variable and hospital competition, HMO penetration, and hospital and patient characteristics as explanatory variables. Higher hospital competition was associated with lower mortality in California and New York, but not Wisconsin. In addition, higher HMO penetration was associated with lower mortality in California, but higher mortality in New York. In the context of the study states' history with managed care, these findings suggest that hospitals in highly competitive markets compete on quality even in the absence of mature managed care markets. The findings also underscore the need to consider geographic effects in studies of market structure and hospital quality.

Abstract:

Understanding whether the gradient in children's health becomes steeper with age is an important first step in uncovering the mechanisms that connect economic and health status, and in recommending sensible interventions to protect children's health. To that end, this paper examines why two sets of authors, Chen et al (2006) and Case et al (2002), using data from the same source, reach markedly different conclusions about income-health gradients in childhood. We find that differences can be explained primarily by the inclusion (exclusion) of a handful of younger adults living independently.

Abstract:

The paper contributes to a debate on recent fertility developments in eastern and western Germany as well as on the lacking convergence of family formation patterns between the two regions. We address the relationship between the perception of instable employment careers and economic insecurity in relation to family formation intentions. We conduct a thematic and interpretative analysis of problem-centered interviews with stratified sub-samples of eastern and western Germans in their late twenties. Our findings show considerable differences between the two regions. In western Germany stable employment precedes family formation following a rigid sequential pattern, whereas in eastern Germany employment stability and family formation are conceived and practiced as parallel investments.
