Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research [Rostock, Germany] "Perceptions of job instability and the prospects of parenthood between eastern and western Germany," by Laura Bernardi, Holger Von der Lippe, and Andreas Klarner (WP-2006-017, June 2006, .pdf format, 45p.).

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

Center for Research on Child Well-Being (Princeton University): "Authoritative, Authoritarian, or Something Less? Conservative Christianity and Paternal Involvement in Fragile Families," by Christopher Wildeman (Working Paper No. 2006-26-FF, July 2006, .pdf format, 38p.).

Abstract:

Using nationally representative data from married families, research has consistently demonstrated that both generic religious values and conservative Protestantism are positively associated with paternal involvement. Unfortunately, little research has focused on the association between affiliation with a conservative Christian group and paternal involvement in so-called fragile families -- families in which the parents were not married when the child was born -- despite the fact that this is an increasingly common parenting context in the United States. In this paper, I use labeling theory to suggest why conservative Christianity may be associated with decreased paternal involvement in fragile families and test this hypothesis using data from the one-year follow-up of the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study -- a longitudinal study of mostly unmarried parents residing in urban areas in the United States. Results demonstrate that affiliation with a conservative Christian denomination is negatively associated with affective paternal involvement, suggesting that conservative Christian cohabiting fathers are neither authoritarian nor authoritative -- and possibly more accurately described as uninvolved.

A. "Probabilistic Population Projections for the EU-25," by Sergei Scherbov and Marija Mamolo (European Demographic Research Papers 2006-1, 2006, .pdf format, 22p.).

Abstract:

This paper presents the first probabilistic population projections for the EU-25. The added value of this approach lies in the possibility of establishing measures of uncertainty for the future population dynamics of the EU as a whole. Such a comprehensive perspective on future trends complements other population projections for the EU. In particular, these new probabilistic projections are directly built on the most recent Eurostat population projections in terms of using identical baseline data and in terms of using their high and low scenarios for fertility to define the central 90 percent of the normal distribution assumed to cover the full range of uncertainty in possible future trends. In terms of results these projections show that there is very little uncertainty about the fact that the EU is facing massive population ageing. There is an 80 percent chance that the old age dependency ratio will double from currently 0.25 to more than 0.5 in 2050. As to the proportion of the population that will be above the age of 80, a doubling over the coming decades is virtually certain (more than 95 percent chance) while there is even a 60 percent chance that it will increase by a factor of three or more. This implies that by the middle of the century it is likely that more than one out of eight EU citizens will be above age 80, while currently it is only one out of 25.

B. "External Shocks, Household Consumption and Fertility in Indonesia," by Jungho Kim and Alexia Prskawetz (VID Working Papers 04/2006, 2006, .pdf format, 33p.).

Abstract:

This paper examines the impact of idiosyncratic income shocks on household consumption, educational expenditure and fertility in Indonesia, and assesses whether the investment in human capital of children and fertility are used to smooth household consumption. Using six different kinds of self-reported economic hardships, our findings indicate that coping mechanisms are rather efficient for Indonesian households that perceive an economic hardship. Only in case of unemployment we find a significant decrease in consumption spending and educational expenditure while fertility increases. Theses results indicate that households that perceive an unemployment shock use children as a means for smoothing consumption. Regarding the death of a household member or natural disaster we find that consumption even increases. These results are consistent with the argument that coping mechanisms even over-compensate the actual consumption loss due to an economic hardship. One important lesson from our findings is that different types of income shock may lead to different economic and demographic behavioral adjustments and therefore require specific targeted social insurance programs.
