MetadataShow full item record
This goal of this thesis is to empirically examine the effects of certain determinants of divorce using state-level data between 2005 and 2009. Microeconomic theory is used to both predict and analyze the outcomes of the chosen variables. By using an approach that combines aspects of both fixed- and random-effects models, this paper shows a unique combination of results in comparison to the existing literature.
