Children of the Berlin Wall fall

Children of the Berlin Wall fall | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it

Children born in crises face different initial conditions. Data on children born in East Germany just after the Berlin Wall came down confirms that this corresponds to worse adult outcomes. ‘Children of the Wall’ have 40% higher arrest rates, are 33% more likely to have repeated a grade by age 12, and are 9% more likely to have been put into a lower educational track. This column argues that these negative outcomes can be explained by the lower average parenting skills of those who decided to have children during a period of high economic uncertainty.

Article features research from the Centre for Economic Performace (which receives ESRC funding), which was presented at an ESRC Festival of Social Science event.
