Women's Educational Attainment and the Timing of Entry into Parenthood.
Marini, Margaret Mooney
American Sociological Review, v49 n4 p491-511 Aug 1984
Reviews research on the relationship between women's educational attainment and timing of their entry into parenthood. Presents data from a 15-year follow-up of high school students originally surveyed in 1957-58 (and resurveyed in 1973-74). Concludes that educational attainment has a strong delaying effect on timing parenthood, but that their relationship is reciprocal. (KH)
