She's Leaving Home: But Why? An Analysis of Young People Leaving the Parental Home.
Buck, Nicholas; Scott, Jacqueline
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n4 p863-74 Nov 1993
Used data from Panel Study of Income Dynamics to examine timing and process of leaving home to different destinations of marriage and independent living. Found that trend has been toward leaving later, especially for men. Other findings suggest that short-term changes in characteristics of family background have important influence on timing and destination of departures. (Author/NB)
