The impact of legislation on divorce : a hazard function approach
Kidd, Michael P. (1995) The impact of legislation on divorce : a hazard function approach. Applied Economics, 27(1), pp. 125-130.
The paper examines the impact of the introduction of no-fault divorce legislation in Australia. The approach used is rather novel, a hazard model of the divorce rate is estimated with the role of legislation captured via a time-varying covariate. The paper concludes that contrary to US empirical evidence, no-fault divorce legislation appears to have had a positive impact upon the divorce rate in Australia.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
