Some Women Marry Young: Transitions to First Marriage in Metropolitan and Nonmetropolitan Areas.
McLaughlin, Diane K.; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n4 p827-38 Nov 1993
Examined extent to which timing of first marriage differed for metropolitan and nonmetropolitan young women. Individual-level data from National Longitudinal Survey of Youth were matched to local marriage market conditions to estimate discrete time hazard models of transitions to first marriage. Found that young nonmetropolitan women married at younger age than metropolitan women. (Author/NB)
