Title: Paternal Incarceration and Birth Outcomes: Evidence from New York City, 2010-2016 ABSTRACT:Parental incarceration is now sufficiently common and unequally distributed that it could have implications for population health and population health disparities if it has negative effects on children. In this presentation, I present descriptive results from linked administrative data in New York City showing how paternal incarceration during the gestational period is associated with a range of infant outcomes. In so doing, I present the first estimates of the paternal incarceration-child health association using objectively measured indicators of both paternal incarceration and child health.
