Welfare and Out-of-Wedlock Childbearing: Evidence from the 1980s.
Plotnick, Robert D.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v52 n3 p735-46 Aug 1990
Used data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth to examine relationship between welfare and teenage out-of-wedlock childbearing in the 1979-84 period. The results indicated a relationship between welfare policy and out-of-wedlock childbearing for White and Black, but not for Hispanic, adolescents, although the evidence was not strong enough to make this conclusion fully compelling.
