Additions to Bibliography of FLS Research

This regular section of the FLS Newsletter includes a list of research papers based on RAND Family Life Survey databases. The first issue of the newsletter contained mainly papers based on the MFLS-2 data. A bibliography of MFLS-1-based research up to 1992 is included in MR-106, The Second Malaysian Family Life Survey: Overview and Technical Report. Each subsequent issue of the FLS Newsletter will include only new additions to the bibliographic list maintained at RAND. The complete bibliography is available on the FLS Home Page.

The content of the FLS bibliography is dependent on the goodwill and assistance of FLS data users. We can list only those papers of which we are aware. This is especially true for working papers, conference papers, and other works not yet published in professional journals. Thus, we encourage FLS users who wish to include their work in the bibliography to send us the relevant citations. We have included a postcard to make it easy to respond.
