Bailey et al. find higher income among children whose parents had access to federal family planning programs in the 1960s and 70s

PSC Announcement


A study by Martha Bailey, Olga Malkova, and Zoë McLaren provides new evidence that US family planning programs started in the 1960s and 70s increased economic resources and reduced poverty for children in families likely to receive assistance. The magnitudes of the estimates for income effects imply that the returns to family planning programs compare favorably with those from other public programs directly targeting child poverty.
