    Abstract

    In recent years, changes in women's lifestyles, and a decline in recreation goods price due to technological progress have been observed in Japan. In this paper, we use Japanese household micro data and examine the effect of recreation goods price on child birth in Japan. We find that the decrease in the price of recreation goods contributes to the decline in child birth. Traditionally, research studies focused mainly on relationships between child birth and women’s wage, women’s labor supply and educational spending, but we show here that leisure is also an important factor affecting child birth, along with these factors.
