A. "Statistics in Brief: Revenues and Expenditures by Public School Districts: School Year 2000-01," by Frank Johnson (NCES 2004319, April 2004, .pdf format, 12p.).

Abstract:

This brief publication contains data on revenues and expenditures per pupil made by school districts for school year 2000-01. Median per pupil revenue and expenditure data are reported by state, as well as values at the 10th and 90th percentiles. Data for charter schools are also reported. There are also discussions on the different types of school districts, and other resources that may be helpful in analyzing school district level data.

B. "The High School Sophomore Class of 2002: A Demographic Description. First Results From the Base Year of the Educational Longitudinal Study of 2002," by Steven J. Ingels and Leslie A. Scott (NCES 2004371, April 2004, .pdf format, 43p.).

Abstract:

This report presents first findings from the Base Year of the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS:2002). ELS:2002 is the fourth major secondary school longitudinal study sponsored by NCES, closely reflecting the research purposes and designs of its three predecessor studies NLS-72, HS&B, and NELS:88. Beginning with a nationally representative sample of 10th-graders in 2002, ELS:2002 is designed to provide data about critical transitions experienced by students as they proceed through high school and into postsecondary education or the workplace. This E.D. Tabs report summarizes the sociodemographic and educational characteristics of the sophomore class of 2002. These characteristics are captured in a series of student- and school-level classification variables. At the student level, these variables are: sex, age, race/ethnicity, language minority status, family composition, parental education, students expectations, and tested achievement. Also included are three characteristics of each students school: sector (public, Catholic, or other private), metropolitan status (urban, suburban, or rural), and region in which schools are located (Northeast, Midwest, South or West).

Kaiser Family Foundation Report: "HIV and Sexual Behaviour Among Young South Africans: A National Survey of 15-24 Year- Olds" (Program for Health and Development in South Africa via Kaiser Family Foundation, 2004, .pdf format, April 2004, .pdf format, 82p.). "With South Africa in the grips of the devastating HIV/AIDS epidemic, an unprecedented survey found that 1 in 10 South African youth are HIV positive and more than three-quarters of them are women. Nearly one in four women aged 20-24 are HIV positive compared to 1 in 14 men of the same age. The survey, "HIV and Sexual Behaviour Among Young South Africans: A National Survey of 15-24 Year Olds," included in-person interviews in nine languages and biological testing for HIV of a nationally representative sample of approximately 11,900 15-24 year olds. The survey is the first of three such studies to be conducted at approximately two year intervals over the expected duration of the loveLife initiative, to track changes in HIV prevalence and sexual behavior among South African youth. It also gauges the impact of loveLife, South Africa's largest national HIV prevention initiative, on HIV and related risk behaviors."

WORKING PAPERS:

Institute for Social Research (IZA) [Bonn, Germany]:

A. "Selection or Network Effects? Migration Flows into 27 OECD Countries, 1990-2000," by Peder J. Pedersen, Mariola Pytlikova, and Nina Smith (Discussion Paper 1104, April 2004, .pdf format, 46p.).

Abstract:

Recent migration patterns show growing migration pressure and changing composition of immigrants in many Western countries. During the latest decade, an increasing proportion of the OECD immigrants have been from poor countries, where the educational level of the population is low. The migration patterns may be affected by the relatively generous welfare schemes in most OECD countries, but also network effects and migration policy changes may be important factors behind the observed development. This paper presents empirical evidence on immigration flows into 27 OECD countries during a period of 11 years, 1990-2000. Using a panel data model, we analyze the determinants of the migration flows. Our results indicate that traditional factors as cultural and linguistic distance are important. Network effects are also strong, but vary between source and destination countries. We do not find clear evidence that selection effects have had a major influence on the observed migration patterns until now. This may partly be explained by restrictive migration policies in many OECD countries which may have dampened the potential selection effects.

B. "Rising Occupational and Industry Mobility in the United States: 1968-1993," by Gueorgui Kambourov and Iourii Manovskii (Discussion Paper 1110, April 2004, .pdf format, 66p.).

Abstract:

We analyze the dynamics of worker mobility in the United States over the 1968-1993 period at various levels of occupational and industry aggregation. We find a substantial overall increase in occupational and industry mobility over the period and document the levels and time trends in mobility for various age-education subgroups of the population. To control for measurement error in occupation and industry coding, we develop a method that utilizes the newly released, by the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, Retrospective Occupation-Industry Supplemental Data Files. We emphasize the importance of the findings for understanding a number of issues in macro and labor economics, including changes in wage inequality, productivity, life-cycle earnings profiles, job stability and job security.

C. "Child Poverty in English-Speaking Countries," by John Micklewright (Discussion Paper 1113, April 2004, .pdf format, 32p.).

Abstract:

The paper considers child poverty in rich English-speaking countries -- the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, and Ireland. Do all these countries really stand out from other OECD countries for their levels of child poverty, as is sometimes assumed? And what policies have they adopted to address the problem? Poverty is interpreted broadly and hence the available cross-national evidence on educational disadvantage and teenage births is considered alongside that on low household income. Likewise, discussion of policy initiatives ranges across a number of areas of government activity.

D. "Who Is Against Immigration? A Cross-Country Investigation of Individual Attitudes toward Immigrants," by Anna Maria Mayda (Discussion Paper 1115, April 2004, .pdf format, 59p.).

Abstract:

This paper empirically analyzes both economic and non-economic determinants of attitudes toward immigrants, within and across countries. The two individual-level survey data sets used, covering a wide range of developed and developing countries, make it possible to test for interactive effects between individual characteristics and country-level attributes. The paper identifies and investigates a strong empirical regularity concerning the relationship between individual skill and attitudes toward immigrants. I find that individuals with higher levels of skill are more likely to be pro-immigration in high per capita GDP countries and less likely in low per capita GDP countries. Additional results, based on a smaller sample of countries, suggest a labor-market explanation for this cross-country pattern. The variation across countries in the correlation between skill and preferences appears to be related to differences in the skill composition of natives relative to immigrants across destination economies. This finding is consistent with the predictions of the Heckscher-Ohlin model, in the absence of factor-price-insensitivity, and of the factor-proportions-analysis model. Finally, non-economic variables also appear to be correlated with immigration attitudes but they do not seem to alter significantly the results on the economic explanations.
