Corcoran and Courant, “Sex-Rose Socialization and Occupational Segregation” 1. Main findings and conclusions A. presence of brothers has negative effect on schooling of sisters (for nonblack girls) B. mother’s occupation (esp. its “sex-typicality”) affects daughter’s occupation C. income maximization/division of labor does not seem very powerful in explaining roles of husband or wife in home/market work 2. Empirical analyses of children’s schooling A. Table 1: variables included in the analyses B. Table 2 (p. 338): regression results on children’s schooling (each column is a separate regression, one for each race/sex group – white girls, nonwhite boys, etc.) C. regression specifies effects of opposite-sex sibling (OSS) using both a dummy variable and an interaction term between OSS and income (Inc) D. so general form of the relation looks like this: schooling = a + b OSS + c [Inc × OSS] + other terms thus, if have OSS: schooling = a + b + c Inc + other terms if no OSS: schooling = a + other terms E. so the effect of having OSS is given by the difference between these two expressions: change in schooling due to OSS = b + c Inc
