A Life Course Investigation of Economic Pressure in Emerging AdulthoodConsumer Interests Annual
Publication VersionPublished Version
AbstractThis study investigates whether economic pressure in emerging adulthood is influenced by childhood social background and differing patterns of entry into adult roles. More specifically, gender, ethnicity-race, parent SES, family structure, and high school GPA may influence the coordinated movements into adult roles such as the timing of moving away from home, completing an education, full-time work, marriage, and parenthood. We looked at individual patterns of financial economic pressure as it changed over time from ages 25-31.
