Title Alone in the ivory tower: how birth events vary among male and female fast-track professionals
Date 2009-06-10
Description We use data from the 2000 Census Public Use Microsample to examine the likelihood of a birth event, defined as the household presence of a child under two years old, for male and female professionals. Physicians have the highest rate of birth events, followed in order by attorneys and academics. Within each profession men have more birth events than women.
