In 1996, NLS management designed a section of the NLSYW questionnaire devoted to transfers of time and money among family members.
Only the group that is identified as members of the sandwich generation is examined using the type of transfers and the detailed contextual variables that are part of the NLSYW data.
First, when weighted, the NLSYW data are nationally representative of the target population--women who were 14 to 24 on December 31, 1967 and resided in the United States at the time of screening in 1966.
In the first analysis, they replicated the conditions of the NLSYW sample used in Geronimus and Korenman's initial study--limiting to sister pairs who lived together during their teens and early 20s.
In both the NLSYW and the NLSY but not the PSID, they found evidence of "family background heterogeneity bias," or the tendency for the effects of teen childbearing to be overstated when the teen-age mother's family background was not adequately controlled.
