  • Mortality convergence of twins and singletons in sub-Saharan Africa (by
           Roland Pongou, David Shapiro, Michel Tenikue)

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND
      While there is a substantial amount of literature documenting that twins have higher mortality than singletons, that literature does not address the questions of whether this disadvantage of twins eventually disappears and if so, at what age.
      OBJECTIVE
      This paper seeks to determine if there is convergence of mortality of twins and singletons and if so, to determine the age at which convergence takes place. We also examine how twin–singleton mortality differences have changed across successive cohorts.
      METHODS
      We use data on more than 3 million live births from 99 Demographic and Health Surveys carried out between 1990 and 2013 in 34 different countries in sub-Saharan Africa to examine age-specific mortality of twins and singletons, by month for the first year of life and by year up to age 25.
      RESULTS
      We find that mortality of twins is considerably higher than that of singletons in the first year of life, and especially in the first month. As children age, a narrowing of the mortality difference occurs, with convergence taking place by age 6. Over time, mortality of both twins and singletons has declined, but the disadvantage of twins has persisted.
      CONCLUSIONS
      The mortality disadvantage of twins compared to singletons eventually disappears as they age.

  • Housework share and fertility preference in four East Asian countries in
           2006 and 2012 (by Man-Yee Kan, Ekaterina Hertog, Kamila Kolpashnikova)

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND
      Previous research suggested that husbands’ participation in housework is positively associated with fertility choices for both women and men. We tested this association by using data of four East Asian countries.
      OBJECTIVE
      This paper examines whether the positive association between gender-equal sharing of housework participation and fertility intention in China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan has strengthened between 2006 and 2012.
      METHODS
      We harmonize two datasets, the 2006 East Asian Social Survey and the 2012 International Social Survey Programme. We employ OLS and ordered logit models estimators to test the association between husband’s housework participation and the ideal number of children.
      RESULTS
      In both 2006 and 2012, husband’s participation in housework is associated with both own and partner’s fertility intentions in 2006 and 2012. The association between the domestic division of labour and fertility has not changed between 2006 and 2012.
      CONCLUSIONS
      Corroborating the findings of our earlier paper the results suggest that a more gender-equal domestic division of labour in East Asia is associated with higher fertility intentions in this region. The gender revolution framework offers a plausible explanation for the East Asian fertility trends between 2006 and 2012. The findings suggest that there is a stall in the pace of the gender revolution.

  • Investigating China's inter-prefecture migration from a place attractivity
           perspective, its spatial patterns, and demographic characteristics (by
           Yaojun Zhang, Danlin Yu, Qiao Cen)

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND
      Urbanization has been regarded as a strategic process to alleviate rural poverty, support local economic growth, and facilitate national sustainable development in China. Scholars have long realized that urbanization is a comprehensive process that can be understood through studies of population migration among places where population flows occur.
      OBJECTIVE
      Place attractivity is a concept derived from the place interaction model, which measures the ability for urban areas to attract migrants, hence the “ability” of urbanization. By studying the spatial patterns of China’s place attractivity, the study attempts to depict the current migration and urbanization dynamics in China and support sustainable urbanization strategies in China.
      METHODS
      The Relative Intrinsic Attractivity (RIA) index provides an excellent quantification strategy to measure place attractivity. With data obtained at the prefecture level from China’s 2005 1% census sampling survey (the most recent of such data), the study calculated RIA for each prefecture units and various population groups.
      RESULTS
      The results suggest that cities in central China have the lowest place attractivity. There is a diverging trend of China’s place attractivity with a rather unbalanced urban system development. Cities of different sizes have a different place attractivity, with large cities having the highest attractivity. A city’s attractivity also varies between population groups.

  • Internal migration in the United States: A comprehensive comparative
           assessment of the Consumer Credit Panel (by Jack DeWaard, Janna Johnson,
           Stephan Whitaker)

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND
      We introduce and provide the first comprehensive comparative assessment of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York/Equifax Consumer Credit Panel (CCP) as a valuable and underutilized dataset for studying internal migration within the United States. Relative to other data sources on US internal migration, the CCP permits highly detailed cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses of migration, both temporally and geographically
      OBJECTIVE
      We seek to demonstrate the comparative utility and some of the unique advantages of the CCP relative to other data sources on US internal migration.
      METHODS
      We compare cross-sectional and longitudinal estimates of migration from the CCP to similar estimates derived from the American Community Survey, the Current Population Survey, Internal Revenue Service data, the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, and the Survey of Income and Program Participation.
      RESULTS
      Our results firmly establish the comparative utility and clearly illustrate some of the unique advantages of the CCP relative to other data sources on US internal migration.
      CONCLUSIONS
      We conclude by identifying some profitable directions for future research on US internal migration using the CCP, as well as reminding readers of the strengths and limitations of these data.

  • Editorial: P-values, theory, replicability, and rigour (by Jakub Bijak)

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND
      In the light of the recent discussions about the statistical rigour of empirical research, including the interpretation and use of p-values and the importance of the theoretical underpinnings of population studies, the editorial board of Demographic Research has adopted dedicated guidance for authors. Its aim is to clarify our expectations and highlight good practice in these areas. Starting from Volume 42 (2020), authors will be encouraged to follow these guidelines.

  • A spatial dynamic panel approach to modelling the space-time dynamics of
           interprovincial migration flows in China (by Yingxia Pu, Xinyi Zhao,
           Guangqing Chi, Jin Zhao, Fanhua Kong)

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND
      Migration plays an increasingly crucial role in regional growth and development. However, most empirical studies fail to simultaneously capture the spatial and temporal aspects of migration flows, and thus fail to reveal how space-time dynamics shape path-dependent migration processes
      OBJECTIVE
      This study attempts to incorporate space-time dimensions into a traditional gravity model and to measure the impact of regional socioeconomic changes on migration flows. Doing so allows us to better understand the space-time dynamics of complex migration processes.
      METHODS
      We construct a spatial dynamic panel data model for dyadic migration flows and decompose origin, destination, and spillover effects into their contemporaneous, short-, and long-term components. We then apply this approach to panel data of interprovincial migration flows in China from 1985 to 2015.
      RESULTS
      The empirical results indicate that space-time interactions are crucial to the formation and evolution of migration flows. Population size and age structure play an important role in the Chinese interprovincial migration process, particularly dominated by significant and positive spillover effects in the contemporaneous period. The relationship between development and migration tends to take an inverted U-shaped curve, a fact not revealed in nonspatial models.
      CONCLUSIONS
      This fine-grained decomposition of origin, destination, and spillover effects over contemporaneous, short-, and long-term periods can help understand the spatial and temporal mechanisms of migration and its driving factors.

  • Changing gender relations, declining fertility' An analysis of
           childbearing trajectories in 19th-century Netherlands (by Hilde Bras, Reto
           Schumacher)

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND
      A long-standing and still unresolved debate has developed on whether the historical fertility transition was caused by ‘spacing’ (increasing the time between births) or by stopping (terminating childbearing at younger ages). Moreover, there is little consensus about the relative importance of gender relations in effecting reproductive change.
      OBJECTIVE
      First, we wish to shed new light on the stopping versus spacing debate by applying a sequence analysis approach, allowing us to describe changes in complete childbearing trajectories. Second, we want to understand the association between gender relations, among other factors, and reproductive trajectories during the historical fertility decline.
      METHODS
      We use longitudinal data from GENLIAS, a dataset constructed from linked civil registers of the province of Zeeland, the Netherlands, covering the period 1811‒1911. We employ cluster and sequence analysis to identify different types of childbearing trajectories and logistic regression to estimate their correlates.
      RESULTS
      We identified five often-experienced trajectories: two high-fertility traditional trajectories (differing in the length of the reproductive phase), a ‘Stoppers’ trajectory, a ‘Late Starters’ trajectory, and an ‘Almost Childless’ trajectory. Our results show that stopping was the way through which couples controlled their fertility during the early phase of the historical fertility transition in Zeeland, the Netherlands. Although couples with more egalitarian relationships had a higher likelihood to follow a Stoppers trajectory rather than the highest-fertility trajectory, stopping was most clearly linked to birth cohort and social class.

  • Homeownership after separation: A longitudinal analysis of Finnish
           register data (by Marika Jalovaara, Hill Kulu)

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND
      Divorce and separation have become common life-course events in many European countries. Previous studies show that separated individuals are likely to move from homeownership to renting and to experience a period of residential instability. However, little is known about postseparation homeownership levels in the long run.
      OBJECTIVE
      This paper investigates homeownership levels after union dissolution. We extend previous research by examining changes in homeownership levels after separation by time (since union dissolution) and across population subgroups. We study whether and how postseparation homeownership levels are associated with repartnering and gender.
      METHODS
      We use Finnish register data and logistic regression analysis.
      RESULTS
      Compared to partnered individuals, homeownership levels among recently separated individuals are low. With increasing time since union dissolution, homeownership levels increase. However, the levels are high only among repartnered persons and remain low among separated individuals who remain single. Homeownership levels are slightly lower among separated women than among separated men.

  • The limits to cumulative causation revisited: Urban-origin Mexico‒US
           migration in an era of increased immigration restrictions (by Guillermo
           Paredes-Orozco)

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND
      Cumulative causation ‒ the self-reproduction of migration through community social ties ‒ is a phenomenon central to the continuation of Mexico‒US migration, particularly for flows originating in rural areas. A debate has emerged over whether this self-reproducing process also occurs in large urban areas.
      OBJECTIVE
      I aim to determine whether cumulative causation explains US-bound migration from metropolitan areas in Mexico.
      METHODS
      Data comes from the Mexican Migration Project (MMP), which covers 154 origin communities in Mexico (30 of which are in metropolitan areas) and spans the period 1970‒2015. Event-history models are used to estimate the association between community ties and taking a first and last US trip in rural areas, small cities, and metropolitan areas.
      RESULTS
      The findings support the contention that the migration process from metropolitan areas in Mexico is self-reproducing. Differences in the strength of community ties for predicting international repeat migration between rural and metropolitan areas have declined in recent decades.

  • Civilian killings and disappearances during civil war in El Salvador
           (1980‒1992) (by Amelia Hoover Green, Patrick Ball)

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND
      Debate over the civilian toll of El Salvador’s civil war (1980–1992) raged throughout the conflict and its aftermath. Apologists for the Salvadoran regime claimed no more than 20,000 had died, while some activists placed the toll at 100,000 or more. But no rigorous estimate was available to settle the question, which has returned to prominence because of newly opened war-crimes trials.
      OBJECTIVE
      Estimate the total number of civilian killings and disappearances in El Salvador during 1980–1992.
      METHODS
      We match and merge four lists of reported civilian killings and disappearances, gathered by multiple organizations – approximately 20,000 unique episodes in all. We use log- linear modeling to estimate the number of uncounted cases from patterns of list overlap. To account for uncertainty in model selection, we use Bayesian model averaging over the set of decomposable graphical models.
      RESULTS
      We estimate that there were about 71,629 (60,326, 83,775) civilian killings and disappearances during the conflict, or about 1–2% of El Salvador’s prewar population. Correlations between recorded deaths and estimated deaths are imperfect over both time and space.
      CONCLUSIONS
      Unusually, our conservative global estimate is similar to nonstatistical ‘expert guesses.’ However, the estimated distribution of civilian killings and disappearances does not closely track the reported distribution over time or space. Our approach achieves high quality estimates, even in the presence of relatively sparse data.

  • Childlessness, sex composition of children, and divorce risks in China (by
           Li Ma, Ester Rizzi, Jani Turunen)

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND
      Studies on children and divorce in China find a negative association between the number of children and divorce and a protective effect of having a son. Nonetheless, we have little knowledge of how these associations have developed over time.
      OBJECTIVE
      This study explored the association of the number and sex composition of children with divorce risks in China over the period 1980–2012.
      METHODS
      We conducted an event history analysis of longitudinal data from the China Family Panel Studies.
      RESULTS
      Childless couples had an increasingly higher divorce risk than couples with children over our observation period. In the 2000s, the divorce risk of childless couples in both urban and rural areas was approximately five times that of one-child parents. The role of the child’s gender differs for urban and rural one-child parents, with no significant effect on the divorce risk of urban parents and different effects over time for rural parents.
      CONCLUSIONS
      Our findings show that ending a marriage when having no children has become an increasingly pronounced trend. Furthermore, partially due to the rapid socioeconomic and demographic progress and the rise of girls’ empowerment, the child’s gender has lost importance for the divorce risk of urban parents.
