Análisis de reducción de la fecundidad en Colombia. Modelo de determinantes próximos


  • Camilo Andrés Mesa Salamanca


  • Gustavo Adolfo Junca Rodríguez



El proceso de reducción de la fecundidad es un fenómeno moderno de la sociedad. Como explicación existen diferentes concepciones que parten de la teoría de la transición demográfica y se fundamentan tradicionalmente en una visión económica, aun cuando existen aportes de otras ciencias sociales. El presente documento recoge en parte dichas teorías y analiza la reducción de la fecundidad para el caso de Colombia empleando el modelo de determinantes próximos de la fecundidad, siguiendo lo planteado por Bongaarts (1978) y Gertler y Molyneaux (1994).
