Preface; Acknowledgments; Overview: The Birth Quake and Its Aftershocks; Part 1. Defining Concepts and Terms; 1. Population Growth and Relative Cohort Size; 2. Male Relative Income and Its Significance; 3. Defining Variables: Relative Cohort Size and Relative Income; Part 2. First-Order Effects of Changing Relative Cohort Size; 4. Patterns of Male Relative Income over the Years; 5. First-Order Effects of Relative Cohort Size: Long-Term Trends in Unemployment, Relative Income, and Returns to College; 6.

Summary: Between 1965 and 1985, the Western world and the United States in particular experienced a staggering amount of social and economic change. In Birth Quake, Diane J.
