I need statistical info about the generally negative economic impact of divorce on women, for a skeptical student in a class I am teaching. i recall reading about a recent controversy over the findings put forward in L. Weitzman's work, I think, but I cannot put my hands on anything here in the office on short notice. Does anyone have any data? Many thanks!
