This chapter analyzes several outcomes associated with teen mothers' residential choices. It investigates whether public assistance programs, such as Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC), encourage teen mothers to establish independent households rather than to reside with their parents or other relatives. It begins by describing the geocoded 1979–1993 National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY) and other data used in the analysis. It then presents the analytic framework used—a two-stage multinomial logit-OLS model of endogenous residential choice.
