On Population Structure and Marriage Dynamics

  • Eugenio P. Giolito

    (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid)

In the second part of the paper I extend the model to a finite number of periods and, using fertility data, show that two mechanisms described above may have acted as persistence mechanisms after a fertility shock like the baby boom in the U.S. Specifically, I show that demographic dynamics may account for up to a third of the increase in men's age of marriage since 1977.
