How parental background is connected with children’s pathways into adult life

Children brought up in families in Finland with high level of socioeconomic resources follow more successful pathways to adulthood compared to the pathways of those with fewer such resources. Educational choices strongly shape the patterns of other life paths and events in early adulthood. These are some of the results of a new study in Demography.

Maternal age is not related to poorer child health

Does the age of the mother at the time of pregnancy and childbirth affect the health of the baby? This is a question that may intrigue many parents and potential parents in Sweden, particularly given that the average age at which mothers give birth in Sweden has increased from less than 27 in the early 1970s to around 31 today. But our recent study in American Journal of Epidemiology shows that the mother’s age is not related to factors such as premature birth or low birth weight – at least not among mothers who have at least two children.
