    Abstract

    [eng] The thorough and systematic study about the influence of economic variables on the fecondity has been really developed in connexion with industrial countries. This article presents the principal theories on this matter (Easterlin hypothesis, demographic implosion, new home economics); so it is possible to point out interpretation elements of the observed demographic situation (contraceptive revolution, singular family model, increase of the female activity). That permits to indicate what the adequate economic policy in this field might be and introduce some methodological suggestions. [fre] L'étude approfondie et systématique de l'influence des variables économiques sur la fécondité s'est véritablement développée à propos des pays industrialisés ayant effectué leur transition démographique. Cet article propose une présentation des principales théories élaborées (cycle de la fécondité, phénomène d'implosion démographique, « new home economics») afin de dégager des éléments d'interprétation de la situation démographique observée (révolution contraceptive, uniformisation du modèle familial de référence, montée du travail salarié féminin). Cela permet d'indiquer quelle pourrait être l'orientation de la politique économique en ce do- maine et de faire quelques suggestions d'ordre méthodologique.
