Abstract: Fertility rates in the United States have declined substantially since the 2008 Great Recession following a long period of relative stability. Using data from the Current Population Survey, American Community Survey, and National Survey of Family Growth, we identify an apparent generational shift in fertility patterns between Generation X (born 1965-1979) and Millennials (born 1980-1995). We investigate the potential role changes in partnering may play in driving this decrease in fertility. As Millennials have not completed their childbearing years and may simply be delaying their fertility more than Gen X, we calculate the fertility rates Millennials would need to experience in their late 30s and 40s in order to achieve similar total cohort fertility as Gen X. While still preliminary, our work points to the potential importance of the unique economic and social conditions experienced by Millennials in young adulthood in shaping their fertility.

CSDE Research & Highlights

Louie Co-Authors Article on Anti-Black Racism and the Health of White Americans

CSDE Affiliate Dr. Patricia Louie (Sociology) released an article with her co-author Dr. Reed T. DeAngelis in Social Forces, titled “Fear of a Black Neighborhood: Anti-Black Racism and the Health of White Americans“, where authors explore whether anti-Black racism harms the health of White Americans. Using data from a community sample, this paper demonstrates that regardless of neighborhood crime rates or socioeconomic compositions, Whites report heightened perceptions of crime and danger in their neighborhoods as the proportion of Black residents increases, net of actual crime rates. Perceived neighborhood danger, in turn, predicts increased symptoms of distress. When stratified by socioeconomic status (SES), however, low-SES Whites also report perceptions of higher status when living near more Black neighbors, which entirely offsets their distress. This paper advances the current literature by showing how the positioning of Whites within racialized hierarchies can affect their health by exposing them to unique psychosocial stressors and resources stemming from neighborhood contexts. In addition, this paper pushes forward an important research agenda on the impact of whiteness on health and how anti-Black racism can ironically harm the health of White Americans.

Ornelas and Colleagues Evaluate School-based Intervention to Promote Healthy Eating Among American Indian Children

CSDE Affiliate Dr. India Ornelas (Health Systems and Population Health) co-authored new research in BMC Public Health, titled “Process evaluation of the Yéego! Program to increase healthy eating and gardening among American Indian elementary school children“. American Indian children are at increased risk for obesity and diabetes. School-based health promotion interventions are one approach to promoting healthy behaviors to reduce this risk, yet few studies have described their implementation and fidelity. Authors conducted a qualitative process evaluation of the Yéego! Healthy Eating and Gardening Program, a school-based intervention to promote healthy eating among Navajo elementary school children. The intervention included a yearlong integrated curriculum, as well as the construction and maintenance of a school-based garden.

Seattle’s 2021 Heat Dome Associated with Excess Healthcare Utilization: New Research by Hess and Co-authors

CSDE Affiliate Dr. Jeremy Hess (Emergency Medicine, Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences, Global Health) co-authored research in JACEP Open, titled “Impacts of the 2021 heat dome on emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and health system operations in three hospitals in Seattle, Washington.” Extreme heat events (EHEs) are associated with excess healthcare utilization but specific impacts on emergency department (ED) operations and throughput are unknown. In 2021, the Pacific Northwest experienced an unprecedented heat dome that resulted in substantial regional morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to examine its impact on ED utilization, unplanned hospitalization, and hospital operations in a large academic healthcare system. The researchers found an increase in demand for emergency care and unplanned hospitalizations. They also found that EDs were more crowded and patients had longer ED lengths of stay during the heat dome, all of which highlight the need for capacity management in future EHEs.

New Tool to Identify Caregivers’ Topical Fluoride Hesitancy is Developed by Chi and Colleagues

CSDE Affiliate Dr. Donald Chi (Health Systems and Population Health, Oral Health Sciences) co-authored research in Plos One, titled “Psychometric properties of the Fluoride Hesitancy Identification Tool (FHIT)“. Some caregivers are hesitant about topical fluoride for their children despite evidence that fluoride prevents caries and is safe. Recent work described a five domain model of caregivers’ topical fluoride hesitancy. Authors developed the Fluoride Hesitancy Identification Tool (FHIT) item pool based on the model. This study sought to evaluate the FHIT’s psychometric properties in an effort to generate a short, simple to score, reliable, and valid tool that measures caregivers’ topical fluoride hesitancy.

Swanson Authors Research Brief on the Statistical Margin of Error from a Geometric Perspective

Dr. David Swanson, CSDE external research affiliate (Sociology, UC Riverside), recently published a research brief, “A Statistical Margin of Error from a Geometric Perspective” in Communications in Applied Geometry (Vol 13, no. 2, pp. 185-186). The paper shows that a statistical margin of error for the mean of variable x taken from a random sample of size n from a population of interest of very large, possibly infinite, size can be presented as an extension of the Pythagorean distance between two vectors, where one vector, Vm, represents the mean of the random sample, and the other, V1, is found by summing the n values of x and letting these n summed values form the elements of V1.

Updates from the CSDE Research & Training Cores

CSDE Science Core – Upcoming Workshops: Biomarkers, Statistics & R, Online Surveys & REDCap, Accessing Federal Data

In the upcoming quarter, CSDE will be hosting four workshops and one ‘lunch and learn’ event to facilitate researchers’ adoption of new methods and data to accelerate research programs. These workshops include an overview of portable biomarker data collection in the field, accessing federal statistical data, developing online surveys using REDCap, conducting statistical analysis with R, and an introduction to data options for research on older adults.

Each quarter, CSDE offers 3-5 workshops on data sources, statistical and biomarker methodology, introductions to analysis programs, and more, all given by CSDE staff and faculty affiliates. These workshops can include hands-on training in novel methods and programming, lectures on innovative data sources, and discussions of important issues in research and data collection. Over the course of the academic year, CSDE will offer a diverse and exciting set of workshops, some of which will be offered in person and others remotely via Zoom. Students, faculty, and staff are all welcome to register for our workshops and we welcome registrants from outside the University of Washington for our remote workshops as well.
