Writing science with LaTeX

Peter Jansson
An introduction to authoring with LaTeX for the sciences. The text assumes no prior knowledge of LaTeX. It is intended for students and professionals who wants a brief introduction as a basis for further self-learning. It should be sufficient for writing any document that is based on a template or specific class.
v.2: Added appendix on how to install LaTeX locally on a personal computer. Minor typos in v.1 corrected. Adjusted for Overleaf v2 upgrade.

Over-coverage in Swedish Population Registers Leads to Bias in Demographic Estimates

Andrea Fuentes Monti, Sven Drefahl, Eleonora Mussino & Juho Härkönen
Abstract: Estimating the number of individuals that live in a country has always been among the essential tasks for demographers. In this study we assess the potential bias in estimating the size of different migrant populations due to over-coverage in a country’s population-register system. Over-coverage, i.e., from individuals registered but not living in a country, constitutes an increasingly pressing phenomenon and is tightly linked to differential patterns of registered emigration. However, there is no common...

Psykisk ohälsa bland unga. Betydelsen av skolors sociodemografiska egenskaper och arbetsmiljö

Jannike Kjellström & Gabriella Olsson
Denna studie syftar till att studera betydelsen av skolors sociodemografiska egenskaper och arbetsmiljö för psykisk ohälsa bland niondeklassare i Stockholms kommun. Ytterligare en ambition har varit att studera om dessa samband ser olika ut för pojkar och flickor. Vi finner initialt att det finns stora skillnader mellan Stockholms skolor i förhållande till deras sociodemografiska sammansättning, men att denna skillnad inte i lika stor utsträckning avspeglas i skilda arbetsmiljövillkor mellan olika skoltyper. Viss variation i arbetsmiljöförhållanden...

Cohabitation and Parental Separation: Cohort change in Italy, Great Britain, and Scandinavia

Elizabeth Thomson, Maria Winkler-Dworak & Eva Beaujouan
Abstract: In this paper, we investigate through microsimulation the link between (1) increases in cohabiting first births; (2) shifting differentials in separation rates for parents who are cohabiting versus married at first birth; and (3) cohort change in overall rates of parental separation. Analyses are based on representative surveys in Italy, Great Britain and Scandinavia (represented by Norway and Sweden). We use the hypothetical populations to decompose changes in parental separation across maternal birth cohorts...

Higher divorce risk when mates are plentiful: Evidence from Denmark

Caroline Uggla & Gunnar Andersson
Abstract: Work from social and biological sciences have shown that adult sex ratios are associated with relationship behaviours. When partners are abundant, opportunities for mate switching may increase and relationship stability decrease. To date, most of the human literature has used regional areas at various levels of aggregation to define partner markets. But in developed countries many individuals of reproductive age spend a considerable amount of time outside their residential areas, and other measures may...

When Birth Spacing Does and Does Not Matter for Child Survival: An International Comparison using the DHS

Joseph Molitoris, Kieron Barclay & Martin Kolk
Abstract: A large body of research has found an association between short birth intervals and the risk of infant mortality in developing countries, but recent work from highly developed countries has called these claims into question, arguing that previous estimates have been biased by a failure to adequately control for unobserved heterogeneity. This study addresses this issue by estimating within-family models on a sample of 4.5 million births from 77 countries at various levels of...

Technical report for the Teacher Survey with linkage to the Stockholm School Survey

Jannike Kjellström, Isabelle Holmin Von Saenger, Emilie Löfgren Jarl & Bitte Modin
The Teacher Survey was carried out by our research group through a web-based questionnaire that was sent to all senior-level teachers (grades 7-9) in Stockholm municipality in the spring of 2014, and then again in the spring of 2016, this time also comprising upper secondary school teachers (grades 10-13). Student information from the two corresponding years came from the Stockholm School Survey, which is a total survey of ninth- and eleventh-grade students in all public...

Explaining Swedish Sibling Similarity in Fertility – Parental Fertility Behavior vs. Social Background

Johan Dahlberg & Martin Kolk
Abstract: The aim of this descriptive study is to determine which of the family specific factors – parental fertility behavior and social background – matters the most for the intergenerational transmission of fertility. Brother and sister correlations in age at first birth and final family size were estimated using multilevel linear regression on data covering 242,976 Swedish men and women born between 1958 and 1967. To explore how much of siblings similarity in fertility can...

The influence of family policies on women´s childbearing: A longitudinal micro-data analysis of 21 countries

Sunnee Billingsley, Gerda Neyer & Katharina Wesolowski
Abstract: This study analyzes whether and how family policies are related to women’s first and second child transitions in 21 post-industrial countries. We adapt the social investment approach developed in welfare state research and distinguish between investment-oriented family policies and traditional, protection-oriented family policies. Our family policy indicators vary over time and are merged with fertility histories provided by harmonized individual level data. We use multilevel event-history models and control for time-varying unobserved heterogeneity at...

Cash-for-Care use and Union Dissolution in Finland

Kathrin Morosow, Marika Jalovaara & Juho Härkönen
Abstract: Prominent theories have long suggested that couples’ gendered division of labor decreases the risk of separation. Family policies such as the Finnish cash-for-care (CFC) benefit, which is paid if a young child does not attend public daycare, may encourage a gendered division of labor, at least temporarily. Using Finnish register data, this study examines the effect of receiving the CFC benefit on the short- and long-term risks of separation. Discrete-time event history analyses suggest...

Weak support for a U-shaped pattern between societal gender equality and fertility when comparing societies across time

Martin Kolk
Abstract: A number of recent theories in demography suggest a U-shaped relationship between gender equality and fertility. Fertility is theorized to be high in societies with low levels of gender equality, as well as societies with high gender equality, with lower fertility in a transition phase. This study estimates the relationship between gender equality (as operationalized through female political empowerment) and fertility within societies over time, using yearly information on gender equality and fertility for...

Education, religious practice and gender ideology in Turkey

İlknur Yüksel-Kaptanoğlu & Eva Bernhardt
In this paper we explore how education and religious practice influence gender ideology in Turkey, using survey data for 2003, 2008 and 2013. The two concepts of “male authority” and “female autonomy” are used as proxies for gender ideology, taking advantage of a set of statements intended to capture gender role attitudes among ever-married women 15-49 years. They were constructed using factor analysis. We then analyzed how attitudes to male authority and female autonomy differ...

ICOS Ecosystem Instructions for Storage Fluxes Measurements (CO2, H2O, CH4 and N2O)

Giacomo Nicolini & Dario Papale
The storage flux term, added to the turbulent flux estimated by the Eddy Covariance (EC) system, allows for a closer quantification of the true net ecosystem exchange (NEE) of a given scalar (e.g. CO2, H2O, CH4, N2O, temperature) The storage flux of a given scalar C is given by the vertical integration of the scalar rate of change within the control volume. It is measured by sampling a number of points distributed between the ground...
