Excerpt
The proportion of women who are childless at 20–34 years of age increases markedly as the median family income of the neighborhood increases overall and for white, black, and Hispanic women (figure 1). Similarly, women living in areas with low poverty rates are substantially more likely to be childless at age 20–34 than women living in areas with high poverty rates, and this is true for white, black, and Hispanic women (figure 2). A multilevel model suggests that the prosperity of the county of residence in 1990 is directly related to the probability that a woman is childless at ages 20–34 in 1995, even after controlling for several individual characteristics that are known to be associated with childlessness.
