  • Decent Work Environment and Work-Life Balance: Empirical Analysis of
           Banking Sector of Hostile Environments

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A decent work environment is a crucial concept for promoting work-life balance. Using quantitative analysis with Partial Least Square_ Structural Equation Model, we examined whether four dimensions of a decent work environment, such as employment, social dialogue, social security, and workers’ rights, affect work-life balance of employees in the banking sector of hostile environments. We selected a sample of 379 employees across the four strongest and valuable banking brands in Nigeria. The findings show that three dimensions of a decent work environment, such as employment, social dialogue, and workers' rights, adversely affect work-life balance. These results informed our conclusion that the nature of employment, inadequate social dialogue, and insufficient workers' rights across the banking sector of hostile environments significantly cause a deficiency in work-life balance among workers in this sector. We suggested that policymakers and practitioners emphasize the provision of decent and full employment, adequate opportunity for dialogue with the workers, and workplace rights in designing strategic policies and programs for work-life balance, work-family relationships, and work-family conflict management.

  • IPV Experiences and Financial Strain Over Time: Insights from the
           Blinder-Oaxaca Decomposition Analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Financial strain is one hardship faced by female survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) that is often overlooked. This paper examined the relationships between multiple forms of abuse—with a focus on economic abuse—and financial strain. Guided by stress process model, this study tested two hypotheses: (1) economic abuse is associated with financial strain more than other types of IPV; and (2) decreased economic abuse relates to financial strain over time. The study sample consists of 229 female IPV survivors who participated in a longitudinal, randomized controlled study evaluating an economic empowerment curriculum. Results from regression models suggest that physical abuse and economic abuse were significantly and positively associated with the magnitude of financial strain. Oaxaca–Blinder decomposition was used to partition the mean differences of financial strain over time that was mainly attributed to the decrease in economic and physical abuse (78%). Particularly, the decrease of economic abuse contributed to over half (58%) of the decrease in financial strain over time. Advocates should assess survivors’ risk of economic abuse, evaluate financial strain, and utilize financial safety planning skills to help survivors build economic security and independence. In addition, policy makers should address issues concerning economic security among female IPV survivors.

  • Intra-household Financial Inequality, Gender Equality, and Marital
           Dissolution

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract As households have become increasingly financialized, family scholars have considered the consequences of assets, credit, and debt for family dynamics. Previous studies that focused on labor force participation or earnings found that inequality between partners has important gendered consequences for relationship stability. We expand on this by considering within-couple financial inequality—the extent to which partners hold assets and debts unequally—and its implications for marital stability. Two competing perspectives—financial equality and financial specialization—offer different predictions. Using data from the 1996–2008 panels of the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), we find strong support for the financial equality perspective and little support for the financial specialization perspective. Couples with equal holdings have the most stable marriages. We also find that the positive association between equal financial holdings and marital stability is driven primarily by financial integration, or joint holdings. In some cases, we also find support for a modified version of the gendered institution perspective, as marriages with female partners holding most of the asset or debt are less stable than marriages with male partners holding most or partners holding them equally. We further distinguish among different types of assets and debts in our analyses, in recognition of the growing diversity of financial holdings and their varied implications for relationship quality and stability.

  • How Executive Functioning and Financial Self-efficacy Predict Subjective
           Financial Well-Being via Positive Financial Behaviors

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Financial well-being is a desirable state as it benefits individuals, families, organizations, and society, and these benefits reach beyond the financial domain. We assessed financial well-being as two components (current financial stress and expected future financial security) and used data from a representative sample of adults in the United Kingdom (n = 411). Our study provides novel insights based on preregistered hypotheses, method, and analysis plan on the Open Science Framework. We hypothesized that both executive functioning and financial self-efficacy are positively related to financial well-being via positive financial behaviors. We also hypothesized that executive functioning moderated the indirect relation of financial self-efficacy with financial well-being, and that financial self-efficacy moderated the indirect relation of executive functioning with financial well-being. As predicted, results showed that financial self-efficacy was strongly positively related to financial well-being via positive financial behaviors. Our results did not show that executive functioning was related to financial well-being via positive financial behaviors, nor that executive functioning or financial self-efficacy operated as moderators. This study provides possible strategies for financial practitioners and service providers, among others, to help individuals and families better their financial behaviors and their financial well-being.

  • Effects of Socioeconomic Status on Aging People’s Health in China

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study investigates the effects of socioeconomic status on health among older adults in China. It uses three waves of the nationally representative Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey conducted in 2005, 2008–2009, and 2011–2012. It explores two dependent dummy variables of self-rated health and functional health and employs subjective and objective measures of socioeconomic status. Based on two-stage fixed-effects linear probability modeling, where potential endogeneity bias is accounted for, this study finds that socioeconomic status positively affects both self-rated health and functional health of Chinese older people. The positive impact holds true across different gender and age groups, but it is sensitive to the choice of health and socioeconomic status measures.

  • Financial Disagreements and Money Management Among Older Married and
           Cohabiting Couples in Sweden

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study investigates how partners’ money management strategies are associated with the experience of financial disagreements among older couples (60–80 years old). Money management is a broad concept, and this study operationalizes whether the partners pool all money, the partners pool some money, one partner manages the money (and gives a share to the other partner for personal spending), or the partners keep all money separate. The data comprise a subsample from the Swedish Generations and Gender Survey from 2012 to 2013. The descriptive statistics show that 11% of older couples experience financial disagreements and that there is a large variation in how couples manage their money. Contrary to our expectations, logistic regression analyses further indicate that couples who pool all money are less likely to have financial disagreements than couples who either keep all money separate or adopt a lower degree of pooling. Whether some or all money is kept separate does not seem to be important for the likelihood of financial disagreements, as all these couples are more likely to experience disagreements. Among couples with financial hardship, partial pooling and keeping money separate are associated with a higher likelihood of financial disagreements than pooling all money. In conclusion, the greater probability of financial disagreements among couples who do not pool their earnings calls for greater awareness of the potential consequences of various money management contexts among individuals, couples, decision-makers and practitioners. In the worst cases, couples may have poor financial wellbeing.

           Financial Management Behaviors of Couples

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the relationships among emotion regulation, financial self-efficacy, and couples’ financial management behaviors using the baseline data from 239 heterosexual couples (478 individuals) enrolled in a community-based relationship and financial education program. Structural Equation Modeling was used to test an Actor-Partner Interdependence Model that examined both the individual and partner effects of emotion regulation on financial management behaviors mediated by financial self-efficacy. For both partners, there were significant effects of emotion regulation on financial self-efficacy and significant effects of financial self-efficacy on financial management. There was a significant positive, indirect association of emotion regulation with her overall financial management behaviors for female partners. There was a significant partner effect from males’ financial self-efficacy on female partners’ financial management behaviors. Implications for researchers, policymakers, and practitioners are discussed.

  • Economic Resources Shaping Grandparent Responsibility Within
           Three-Generation Households

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this descriptive study was to explore factors associated with perceptions of grandparent responsibility for grandchildren in three-generation households, focusing especially on a comparison of grandparents’ and parents’ financial contributions to the household and ethnicity of grandparent(s). The analysis used information about three-generation families in the 2011–2015 American Community Survey, retrieved through the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series. In 30% of these families, grandparents said they were “primarily responsible” for the grandchildren, even though the child’s parent was also in the household. Logistic regression models showed that grandparents who contributed a larger share of household income and grandparents who were householders were significantly more likely to report being primarily responsible for grandchildren in three-generation households, suggesting that the distribution of financial resources (or resource balance) within the household was associated with perceptions of responsibility. However, grandparents’ race and ethnicity moderated this association, indicating that cultural norms may intersect with resources in shaping these reports. The findings suggest that perceived responsibilities of grandparents in three-generation households may be shaped by the balance of financial resources among household members, but also by cultural norms of grandparenting.

  • Material Hardship and the Living Arrangements of Older Americans

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study investigates the extent to which the household living arrangements of older adults influences their experiences of material hardship. Using data from the 2014 Panel of the Survey of Income and Program Participation, we run linear probability models with individual fixed effects to estimate the likelihood that a change in living arrangements predicts a change in food insecurity, housing hardship and utility hardship. Although household living arrangements are associated with reports of material hardship for older adults, individual fixed effect models point to a reduced role for the change in living arrangements on the change in the probability of experiencing material hardship. For older adults, we find that moving into a non-family household increases the risk of housing hardship. This study illustrates how the risk of material hardship related to family living arrangements changes over the life course. We call for increased attention to the risk of material hardship for older adults living alone, those in multigenerational living arrangements, and non-family households.

  • The Role of Children’s Savings Accounts in Promoting Savings for College
           Among Welfare Recipients: The Case of Harold Alfond College Challenge
           (HACC)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Research indicates that welfare receipt is an important predictor of household savings towards offspring’s postsecondary education. Meanwhile, a growing body of literature suggests that Children’s Savings Accounts (CSAs) are effective in promoting the saving rate of American households. In this study, we first examine whether there is a negative association between welfare receipt and saving for college and then test if participation in the Harold Alfond College Challenge (HACC) mitigates the negative association. As hypothesized, the predicted conditional probability of saving for college among welfare beneficiaries is 0.02 lower than non-welfare beneficiaries, regardless of their HACC account ownership. Welfare recipients who enroll in the HACC program are about 27% more likely to save for college than those who are not enrolled in the program. Research and policy implications are discussed.

  • What Same-Sex Adoption Laws Can Tell Us About the Gender Wage Gap in the
           United States

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Gender wage gaps are frequently explained as resulting from direct discrimination, employers’ preferences over personality traits, and differing labor force attachment. We rely on a natural quasi-experiment using exogenous changes in state-level, same-sex adoption laws to distinguish between the competing explanations of the gender wage gap. Estimates from a differences-in-differences model show the wage gap between lesbians and heterosexual women shrank or inverted in those states which legalized adoption by same-sex couples. The wage gap did not change for men. This supports the parenthood hypothesis as a viable explanation for a portion of the gender wage gap.

  • The Effects of Child Benefit on Household Saving

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In 2016, a new child benefit was introduced in Poland: a universal benefit for the second and subsequent children in a family and means tested for the first child. Substantial transfers of the new child benefit were granted: 60% of households with children. The generous child benefit, equal to 10% of monthly average household income, caused an unexpected positive income shock for families with children. This paper investigates how the new child benefit affected household decisions to consume or save the child’s income. Applying the difference-in-differences method using Polish Household Budget Survey data for 2012–2018, we find a positive effect of the child benefit on household saving. Our estimates indicate that families obtaining the child benefit (treatment group) increased the saving rate by 8 percentage points after the child benefit reform in 2016. Over time, the control group (not obtaining the child benefit) increased the saving rate by 2.9 percentage points.

  • Direct and Indirect Effects of Parenthood on Later-Life Happiness:
           Evidence from Older Adults in Thailand

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Mechanisms underlying the relationship between parenthood and happiness are not well understood in all contexts; most existing studies focus on the working-age population in high-income settings. This study investigates different pathways through which parenthood influences happiness, using a large sample of older adults (N = 85,477) in a developing country in Asia, Thailand, drawn from three waves of a nationally representative survey. It hypothesizes that happiness in old age is a function not only of parenthood but also of one’s financial status, health status, and social participation, and parenthood is linked with each of the latter three components. The study suggests that parenthood is associated directly with an increase of 1.48% in the level of self-assessed, older-age happiness and indirectly with an increase of 0.66% through its associations with the other three domains of happiness. The mediation effects are strongest through the financial pathway, followed by the health and the social participation pathways respectively. The results are consistent with previous studies in countries where non-family institutions that are intended to provide social security are relatively weak. In order to promote older-age well-being, this study recommends policies encouraging post-retirement financial independence, health-promotion programs, and the provision of community-based activities targeted at older people.

  • COVID-19 and Domestic Violence: Economics or Isolation'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Recent studies estimate that the COVID-19 pandemic significantly increases reports of domestic violence in several countries. Using mobile device tracking data, city-level unemployment data, and new data on labor market conditions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we isolate the effects of unemployment and staying at home on incidents of domestic violence. We find that unemployment decreases domestic violence after controlling for the degree to which people stay at home. We also provide evidence that staying at home increases domestic violence. However, we find that the effects of unemployment and staying at home are concentrated right after an initial shock from mid-March to mid-June 2020. Finally, we find that some labor market conditions linked to COVID-19, such as being prevented from looking for work due to the pandemic, decrease domestic violence, and these labor market effects are often gendered.

      Abstract: Abstract Family-of-origin theory suggests that unstable functioning of the family of origin is related to the limited motivation to take advantage of educational and occupational opportunities. This study identifies latent classes of homeless adults’ perceptions of families of origin and compares their life-course patterns. Four latent classes were identified in a sample of 831 homeless men living in the Warsaw agglomeration, Poland: adult children of multi-problem non-nuclear families (10%), adult children of non-nuclear families with negatively attached relationships (10%), adult children of multi-problem nuclear families (29%), and adult children of well-functioning families (51%). Their reports were compared with those of a control group of 731 housed men. Consistent with the family-of-origin and resilience theories, homelessness in adult children of troubled families was more frequently preceded by controllable events, such as criminal activity, alcohol misuse, and violence, than by problems less or indirectly related to their own decisions, including disability, health difficulties, and long-term unemployment, which were more prevalent in adult children of well-functioning families. Despite the high disparities in school exclusion, no significant differences in first-job experience were observed across the latent classes. The level of functioning of the family of origin is likely to differentiate pathways to homelessness. The family-of-origin theory contributes to the aetiology of homelessness, which may have implications for primary prevention.

  • The Earned Income Tax Credit and Short-Term Changes in Parents’ Time
           Investments in Children

      Abstract: Abstract This study examined whether the addition of household resources via the receipt of the U.S. Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) affects short-term patterns of parents’ time investments in children, including time spent engaged with children and in activities related to their education. Using difference-in-differences analyses that exploit seasonal variation in federal EITC outlays with nationally representative time-diary data from the 2003 to 2017 American Time Use Survey-Current Population Survey (ATUS-CPS; N = 61,355) merged with state-level data from the University of Kentucky Center for Poverty Research (UKCPR) National Welfare Database, I estimate the plausibly causal effects of predicted EITC receipt on various measures of parents’ time investments in their children. I examine parents’ time spent directly engaged with children in enriching activities like play and reading and in activities related to children’s education among a low-socioeconomic sample (parents with less than a college degree). I find few associations between monthly federal EITC outlays and immediate changes in parents’ time investments, although there was evidence that greater EITC outlays predicted small increases in mothers’ time spent reading with or to children, particularly among mothers with young children, but also small decreases in fathers’ time spent in activities with children, particularly school-age children. Findings suggest that increases in household resources, even relatively small and annual increases, may have short-term effects on parent–child interactions and time use.

  • Unexpected Successor in Family Firms: Opportunity or Trap for Women'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Female managers are more common in family firms largely due to women’s incorporation into management positions via succession. Nonetheless, extrinsic and intrinsic factors constrain to some extent the access and the outcomes of female managers as potential successors. This study aims to uncover the particular conditions under which women frequently have access to CEO positions in family firms. Using a database of 177 SME Spanish family firms and using cluster analysis based on TwoStep technique, women are found to be unexpected successors to a greater extent than male successors. Oftentimes, they are chosen as a last resort to cope with poor business performance and low family orientation. More than an opportunity, this unplanned access becomes a trap since it fails to comply with all the requirements of successful transmissions.

  • Assessing the Short-Term Stability of Financial Well-Being in Low- and
           Moderate-Income Households

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Much of the literature on household finance tends to focus on relatively objective measures of financial security (e.g., savings, income, financial knowledge), and there has been less research on measures of subjective financial well-being. This gap is due in part to the absence of a common understanding on defining and measuring subjective financial well-being. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has recently developed a new Financial Well-Being Scale that provides a comprehensive way to measure this construct. The research on this scale is still scarce and little is known about how subjective financial well-being evolves over time. This paper uses a two-wave survey of low- and moderate-income tax filers to present among the first longitudinal analyses of this scale. Through descriptive analysis and lagged dependent variable regressions, we assess (1) the stability of financial well-being over a six-month period; (2) the extent to which relatively stable household characteristics predict volatility in subjective financial well-being; and (3) the relationship between adverse financial events, including financial shocks and material hardships, and subjective financial well-being. We find that financial well-being scores are extremely stable over the short-term, and that relatively stable household characteristics are not strong predictors of subjective financial well-being changes. We also find that, while adverse financial events like job loss are significantly associated with lower subjective financial well-being scores, the magnitude of these relationships is not large. These results have implications for the use of the financial well-being scale in evaluations of financial security interventions.
