...Jay D. Teachman Abstract This paper discusses the mathematical relationship between Schoen’s ∇ and an index derived from log-linear models for making compositionally controlled comparisons of the occurrence of an event in a population. The merits of each and the contributions of the log-linear...

...Robert Schoen Abstract Despite the apparent discrepancy, the scalar increment-decrement model of Schoen (1975), described by equations (3) and (4), is consistent with the Rogers-Ledent matrix formulation shown in equation (I). Either approach may be preferable in certain specific instances...

Published: 01 May 1975
...Robert Schoen Abstract A life table model which can recognize increments (or entrants) as well as decrements has proven to be of considerable value in the analysis of marital status patterns, labor force participation patterns, and other areas of substantive interest. Nonetheless, relatively little...

...Robert Schoen; Nancy S. Landale; Kimberly Daniels Abstract Using the first (1995) and third (2001–2002) waves of the Add Health survey, we examine women’s family transitions up to age 24. Only a third of all women marry, and a fifth of those marriages dissolve before age 24. Three out of eight...

Published: 01 August 2006
...Robert Schoen; Vladimir Canudas-Romo Abstract We present a new, broadly applicable approach to summarizing the behavior of a cohort as it moves through a variety of statuses (or states). The approach is based on the assumption that all rates of transfer maintain a constant ratio to one another over...

Journal Article
Demography (1997) 34 (3): 421–427.
Published: 01 August 1997
...Young J. Kim; Robert Schoen Abstract Population momentum and population aging occur when an initially growing population experiences a reduction in fertility to replacement level. Conceptually and empirically, momentum and aging express the same change, albeit on different scales. Fundamentally...

Demography (1993) 30 (4): 737–746.
Published: 01 November 1993
...Robert Schoen; Robin M. Weinick Abstract Marital status life tables for the United States, 1988, show a continuing retreat from marriage. For both sexes, the proportion ever marrying declined and the average age at first marriage rose. The 1988 rates imply that 43% of marriages end in divorce...

Published: 01 August 1991
...Robert Schoen; Young J. Kim Abstract Although convergence to stability is typically a complex and irregular process, the Kullback distance provides a measure that moves consistently to 0 as a population becomes stable. The roots of the Kullback distance are in information theory...

Published: 01 February 1983
...Robert Schoen Abstract The “marriage squeeze,” or the effect on marriage of an imbalance between the numbers of males and females, has been seen as having a great influence on contemporary marriage behavior. Nonetheless, the literature does not contain a clear definition of exactly what a marriage...

Published: 01 August 1980
...Robert Schoen; Karen Woodrow Abstract As an ordinary life table follows a closed group from birth to the death of its last member, a labor force status life table follows a closed group through life and through the statuses “in the labor force” and “not in the labor force.” Using data from...
