Shahbazian, R. (2021). "Under the Influence of Our Older Brother and Sister: The Association between Sibling Gender Configuration and STEM Degrees". Social Science Research, 97:102558.

This publication examines the association between sibling gender configuration and second-born siblings’ choice of so-called STEM educational fields in Sweden. The findings show that younger siblings, net of parental characteristics, are more likely to choose a STEM field if their older siblings already have acquired a STEM program.
