Family Configuration and Achievement: Effects of Birth Order and Family Size in a Sample of Brothers.
Olneck, Michael R.; Bills, David B.
Social Psychology Quarterly, v42 n2 p135-48 Jun 1979
Birth order effects in brothers were found to derive from difference in family size. Effects for family size were found even with socioeconomic background controlled. Nor were family size effects explained by parental ability. The importance of unmeasured preferences or economic resources that vary across families was suggested. (Author/RD)
