The Effect of Young Maternal Age on Children's Education Level: Does the Age of Giving Birth Really Matter? (in Japanese)
AbstractThere is evidence that young mothers do not have the opportunity to accumulate human capital for themselves, which can have a negative effect on theirchildren's outcomes. This study investigates the effect of young maternal ageon children's educational level. No significant direct effect of young maternalage was found, but it did have a significant indirect effect on parental economic conditions and maternal preferences. Our results suggest that young maternal age has no negative effect on children's educational level.
