My paper examining the fertility impacts of the oil boom in North Dakota was accepted at the Population Association of America’s 2019 meeting! I am psyched beyond belief. The paper looks at oil price and quantity effects and determines their distinct impact on fertility in North Dakota prior to and during the boom. Maybe the most exciting aspect is the session for the paper.
The demographic effects of the oil change were quiet significant. To the surprise of many the impacts of the change go beyond the large changes in migration to a change in the underlying demographic behaviors such as fertility.
Anyway excited to finish the paper and present it!
