Abstract

This study investigates the relationship of income inequality (proxied by the Gini Coefficient), labor productivity (output per capita) on fertility rate in the Philippines. Specifically, this presents the trend of income inequality (ineq), labor productivity (lp) and fertility(tfr) in the Philippines from 1985 to 2009. The study uses Ordinary Least Square (OLS) estimates to study the relationship of the variables. Results revealed that income inequality and labor productivity has a negative relationship with fertility. Hence, an increase in this variable decreases fertility rate. This means that income inequality and labor productivity is significant in achieving the replacement level of fertility.
