Ah, let's check out how the people in my cohort did on the WORDSUM vocabulary test in the General Social Survey and how that relates to how many kids they've had

The sample in the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, which took the AFQT test when they were 15-23 in 1980, shows a more negative relationship for women than for men in number of children born by 2010-2014.

The sample in the NLSY: 97, who were born in 1980-1984 and took the ASVAB Math and Reading test in 1999, shows a negative relationship for both men and women in number of children born by 2015.

The NLSY: 97 distinguishes between resident and non-resident children; there's a very strong positive relationship between male ASVAB score as a teen and whether a man is living with his kids in his early 30s.

Seriously? Those are some very big max-min ratios, > 3! I would have guessed maybe 1.5. Ah, this is in part birth delay...what it look like for 40-59 yr olds?

See the next tweet, for the NLSY sample in their late 40s-50s. Different cohort though, so we'll have to wait to find out how much is just birth delay vs. genuine change in TFRs by group.

I think 30-39 is partly biasing this? I'm not quite duplicating this....
