The Effects of EITC Exposure in Childhood on Marriage and Early Childbearing

This report from the Center for Policy Research at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School reviews the implications of childhood exposure to the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) on marriage and childbearing. In particular, the researchers examine whether EITC has intergenerational benefits by affecting the family formation decisions of men and women exposed to EITC in childhood. The research suggests that EITC investment in youth delays for women the timing of first births.
