The Timing of Childbearing and Women's Wages.
Taniguchi, Hiromi
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v61 n4 p1008-19 Nov 1999
Investigates association between wage losses and the timing of childbearing using data from the young women cohort of the National Longitudinal Survey. Consistent with life course theory, the timing of childbearing significantly influences the extent to which this event shapes women's life chances, and lends support to economic benefits of delaying childbearing. Education significantly reduced childbearing wage penalty. (Author/JDM)
