"Before the introduction of the dividend in 1982, there was no
difference in fertility rates in Alaska versus Synthetic Alaska; the
Synthetic Alaska was specifically constructed so that this would be

were having 11.3 more babies per 1,000 women than Synthetic Alaskans.
The authors find no increase in teenage mothers having kids, but
fertility rose for basically everyone from age 20 to 44, compared to
the control group."
