The National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY), designed to represent the entire population of American youth, consists of a randomly chosen sample of 6,111 U.S.
In testing this hypothesis, we use the rich data on post-secondary education programs available in the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY).
My approach builds on several of the earlier studies using the relatively detailed information available in the NLSY. Although some of the earlier studies--Blau and Robins (1991), Leibowitz, Klerman, and Waite (1992), and Klerman and Leibowitz (1990)--use NLSY data as well, their data are less current and hence less representative of women at first birth.
