Gendered Effects of Intergenerational Social Mobility: Evidence from the General Social Survey

     When:  Friday, Dec 2, 2022 (12:30-1:30 PM)
     Where:  Hans Rosling Center Room 101 & Online Zoom Here

Sign ups for 1-0n-1 talks with Dr. Luo are here

Please join us as CSDE hosts Dr. Liying Luo for a discussion on the “Gendered Effects of Intergenerational Mobility” based on evidence from the General Social Survey.

Sociologists have long been interested in understanding the implications of intergenerational social mobility for individuals’ behaviors and well-being. However, for empirical and historical reasons, most prior research either focused on one subpopulation or assumed a uniform effect of social mobility across demographic groups. Such focus/assumption is too limiting because experiences of and responses to social mobility likely differ depending on individuals’ social and demographic characteristics.

CSDE Research & Highlights

New article by Hill and Colleagues Examines EITC Payments and the Risk of Criminal Conviction During Adolescence

CSDE Affiliate Heather Hill and Co-authors recently published a paper in JAMA entitled “Cumulative Payments Through the Earned Income Tax Credit Program in Childhood and Criminal Conviction During Adolescence in the US“. The authors assess whether cumulative EITC payments received during childhood are associated with the risk of criminal conviction during adolescence. Utilizing the 1979 NLSY the authors find each additional $1000 of EITC received during childhood was associated with an 11% reduction in self-reported criminal conviction during adolescents,

Nurius and Colleagues Author New Study on How Teens Negotiate Risks During Pandemic

CSDE Affiliate Paula Nurius and co-authors have recently published an article entitled “I Just Wanted to Triple Check… They Were All Vaccinated: Supporting Risk Negotiation in the Context of COVID-19” in ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction. This paper uses qualitative methods to explore how young adults plan in-person meetups over computer-mediated communication in the context of the pandemic. The authors identify strategies for risk negotiation, social complexities that impede risk negotiation, and emotional consequences of risk negotiation.

Glass and Co-authors’ Analyses of Somatic Health Among Vietnamese Published in Journal of Psychosomatic Health

CSDE Trainee Delaney Glass recently published a paper entitled “Weathering within war: Somatic health complaints among Vietnamese older adults exposed to bombing and violence as adolescents in the American war” in the Journal of Psychosomatic Health. Glass and co-authors investigate whether wartime stress exposures in adolescents and early childhood affect weathering in late adulthood utilizing the Vietnamese Health and Aging Study. Their findings suggest that the age of exposure to armed conflict is a critical determinant of weathering across the life course.

US Census to Host Talk on Effects of the National War Labor Board on Labor Income Inequality (11/30/2022 @1pm)

The U.S. Census Bureau will be hosting Dr. Nicolas L. Ziebarth on November 20th @1pm ET on the United States federal government policies surrounding wage controls through the National War Labor Board. During World War II, The US government instituted an explicit policy of wage controls with the aim of controlling inflation and discouraging labor mobility. These wage controls, which differed by industry, occupation, and geographic region, specified maximum allowable raises for those earning less than a certain level and froze wages greater than that level.
