Abstract

This study provides estimates for the Nye and Berardo (1973:239) model of the effect of age at marriage on socioeconomic attainments. The sample consists of 17-year-old males studied in 1957 and again in 1972 (N = 313). Estimates are based on a structural equations model, and the data are presented in terms of total, indirect and direct effects. The major findings are that marital timing has neither a total effect on educational and occupational attainments, nor does it mediate the total effects of family socioeconomic statuses, academic performance or occupational aspirations on attainments. However, marital timing does have a statistically significant total effect on respondent's subsequent level of income.
