Baby Boom or Bust? Changing Fertility in Post-Communist Czech Republic and Slovakia

Author

Listed:
  • Chase, R.S.

Abstract

Using micro-data from 1984 and 1993 in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, this paper estimates a dynamic stock adjustment model, relating observed drops in fertility post-Communism to new wages, prices, and risks. Earnings influence total demand for children during Communism through substitution effects for women's earnings and income effects for men's.
