Five Thousand American Families--Patterns of Economic Progress. Volume V: Components of Change in Family Well-Being and Other Analyses of the First Eight Years of the Panel Study of Income Dynamics.
Duncan, Greg J., Ed.; Morgan, James N., Ed.
This volume contains analyses of data from the first eight waves of the Panel Study of Income Dynamics. The first part of this volume attempts to evaluate the relative importance of family composition changes, labor force participation decisions, and changes in earnings for the black and white families studied. The second part deals with a variety of related topics: the relationship between macroeconomic growth and family income; how family background, education, and attitudes affect earnings level and change; and the patterns of year-to-year change in earnings. Other chapters cover fertility patterns, labor force participation decisions of wives, the determinants of participation in the food stamps program, and the choice of child care modes by working mothers. In addition, the work of other researchers using panel data is summarized. Appendices include descriptive tables, response rates and data quality, and a sample of the 1975 questionnaire. (Author/EB)
