UC Davis Alum Melanie Guldi's research cited in the Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal cited research by UC Davis alum Melanie Guldi, joint with coauthor Kasey Buckles of Notre Dame.

"Many economists say that because educated women earn more money, they are less likely to want to delay or interrupt their careers to have children since doing so is a greater economic sacrifice," the Journal reports. "Recent fertility research suggests a more complicated picture. Although college-educated women still have fewer children that those with just a high-school diploma, fewer of them are childless and their fertility rates have inched up since the recession, said Melanie Guldi, associate professor of economics at the University of Central Florida."
