Bailey finds federal programs helped reduce births among poor women in the 1960s and 70s

a PSC In The News reference, 2011

"Family planning: Federal program reduced births to poor women by nearly 30 percent" - UM News Service. 08/30/2011.

Analyzing newly collected data on federal family planning programs that expanded during the 1960s and 70s, Martha Bailey found that access to these programs was associated with significant declines in childbearing, especially among young poor women. Bailey's study will be published in the American Economics Journal.
