Sample text

One limitation of logistic regression is that it does not have a goodness-of-fit measure; however, several proxies for the R2 statistic are available. Because none of the pseudo R2s support a straightforward explained variance interpretation, as does the true R2, there is little agreement as to which pseudo R2 is the best to use in analysis. However, the STATA command “fitstat” provides numerous goodness-of-fit statistics from which to choose, including McKelvey and Zavoina’s R2. Wave 3 of the NSFH was separated into multiple datasets.

The NSFH was administered in three waves; from 1987 to 1988 (Wave 1), 1992 to 1994 (Wave 2), and 2001 to 2003 (Wave 3). I use data gathered in Wave 3 for this book. 2 Wave 3 As previously stated, the first wave of the NSFH was a national survey of 13,017 persons aged nineteen and over and included oversamples of minorities, single parent families, stepfamilies, recently married couples, and cohabiting couples (Sweet et al. 1988). In 1992–1994, the researchers re-interviewed 10,008 of the original respondents in face-to-face computer assisted interviews (Sweet and Bumpass 1995).

Depending on the parents’ position in the life course, their adult children may be more or less likely to be living back at home with them. We see that middle-aged parents with young adult children may have children living with them as a result of “the continued dependence of children on their parents” (Aquilino 1990: 406). Conversely, parents who are elderly may coreside with older adult children owing to their dependence on them. However, we have seen that this is not as likely an occurrence as the former.
