Stories from Ben Gibbs:
With youth hockey teams being organized by age groups, the idea has persisted that kids born earlier in a year have a greater athletic advantage than kids born later in the year. BYU researchers show a trend reversal happening.
More kids in your family. Less education. This pattern isn’t new, but a team of researchers led by BYU sociology professor Ben Gibbs studied why that educational dip occurs and found that there are exceptions to the trend.
