The Criminal Behaviour of Young Fathers

CReAM Research by Christian Dustmann and  Rasmus Landersø, finds that  very young fathers who have their first child while they are still teenagers subsequently commit less crime if the child is a boy than if it is a girl. This  then has a spill over effect on other young men of a similar age living in the same neighbourhoods as the young father. The research was covered on the British press.

(joint with Dani Rodrik), “Who Is Against Immigration? A Cross-Country Investigation of Individual Attitudes Towards Immigrants,” and “Individual Attitudes Towards Immigrants: Welfare-State Determinants Across Countries” (joint with Giovanni Facchini)).
