Environmental Effects on the Participation and Fertility Decisions of Married Women
Economic models of the household allocation have predicted that increased levels of education and wage rates of women would lead to increases in their labor supply and lower levels of fertility. In international comparisons, however, differences in this pattern appear which cannot easily be explained by the traditional model. IN some countries a high fertility rate is observed together with a high female participation rate, while in others, like Italy, low female participation rates are observed together with low birth rates.
