Abstract:

Research on non-marital fertility has focused almost exclusively on unmarried mothers, due in part to a lack of fertility information for men. The availability of a new dataset that contains fertility histories for both men and women, Cycle 6 of the National Survey of Family Growth, now allows exploration of non-marital fertility among both genders. We begin with a brief descriptive comparison of the characteristics of unmarried first-time mothers and fathers. We then use event history techniques to model second birth hazards for parents whose first birth is non-marital and multinomial logit analysis to examine the distribution of men’s and women’s second births across types of relationships. Our analysis is motivated by theories of mate selection and the “relationship” market, specifically the hypothesis that non-marital fertility is more detrimental to women’s than to men’s status in the relationship market. We find mixed support for this hypothesis.
