Hispanics and the future of America by COMMITTEE ON TRANSFORMING OUR COMMON DESTINY( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hispanics and the Future of America presents details of the complex story of a population that varies in many dimensions, including national origin, immigration status, and generation. The papers in this volume draw on a wide variety of data sources to describe the contours of this population, from the perspectives of history, demography, geography, education, family, employment, economic well-being, health, and political engagement. They provide a source of information for researchers, policy makers, and others who want to better understand the fast-growing and diverse population that we call "Hispanic.""--Jacket
Critical perspectives on schooling and fertility in the developing world by Caroline H., Ed Bledsoe( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The assumption of a causal relationship between more schooling and lower fertility for women has led many governments to support women's education. However, understanding the nature and strength of the relationship between education and fertility remains a central challenge for scholars seeking to explain demographic and social change and for policymakers who must allocate scarce public resources. This book brings together analyses from several research perspectives to re-examine the relationship between education and fertility and to rethink conventional lines of logic in the education-fertility paradigm. The papers are: (1) "Introduction" (Caroline Bledsoe, Jennifer Johnson-Kuhn, and John Haaga); (2) "Female Education and Fertility: Examining the Links" (Ian Diamond, Margaret Newby, and Sarah Varle); (3) "What is Meant, and Measured, by 'Education'?" (Anthony Carter); (4) "Implications of Formal Schooling for Girls' Transitions to Adulthood in Developing Countries" (Cynthia Lloyd and Barbara Mensch); (5) "School Quality, Student Achievement, and Fertility in Developing Countries" (Paul Glewwe); (6) "Fertility, Education, and Resources in South Africa" (Duncan Thomas); (7) "Which Girls Stay in School? The Influence of Family Economy, Social Demands, and Ethnicity in South Africa" (Bruce Fuller and Xiaoyan Liang); (8) "Excess Fertility, Unintended Births, and Children's Schooling" (Mark Montgomery and Cynthia Lloyd); (9) "Women's Education, Marriage, and Fertility in South Asia: Do Men Really Not Matter?" (Alaka Basu); and (10) "Fertility and Education: What Do We Now Know?" (Parfait Eloundou-Enyegue). Each paper contains references. (Kb)

Welfare, the family, and reproductive behavior : report of a meeting by National Research Council Staff( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet describes the proceedings of a workshop entitled "Effects of Welfare on Reproductive Behavior and the Family in the US." It summarizes trends in marriage, fertility, and the welfare system, and describes the effects of welfare on marriage, fertility, abortion, and the family. Research and evaluation needs are indicated and justified. The prevailing view among participants was that research does matter with regard to policy, but that it is also necessary to evaluate new program changes. Data and methods need improvement, and too little research has focused on replications, robustness studies, and reconciliation of disparate findings. Research is made more difficult due to the lack of clarity about which Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) rules prevail in different states at varying times. Matching survey data with welfare rules will be made more difficult as states diverge more under the 1996 AFDC Act. Efforts need to be made to improve the availability of data. Some participants desired more studies of the impact of welfare on children and marriage. One participant's review of 8 large federal programs found that in-kind transfers providing direct benefits to children had clearer and larger impacts than cash transfers or housing. Few studies addressed how the AFDC or proposed alternatives impact on family life. Several participants suggested designing new welfare programs to encourage child support payments. Most research addressed the impact on work-related behavior. There was some consensus that welfare has a positive effect on fertility and a negative effect on marriage, but the magnitude is uncertain. Research has not explained why nonmarital childbearing has increased, while welfare benefits have declined, since the 1980s
