Economic models of fertility behaviour in Australia.

Authors:

Aust Econ Pap 1988 Jun;27(50):65-82

The author analyses individual fertility patterns in Australia from the perspective of recent economic models of the family. The emphasis is on the relationship between fertility and economic variables such as human capital, market wages, and wealth. "Several dimensions of fertility are considered, including 'quality' of children, completed family size, and the decision whether to have children or not." Data are from the 1973 Social Mobility in Australia Survey.
