Crop selection, labor intensity in agriculture, and the timing of births



Crop selection, labor intensity in agriculture, and the timing of births



Discussion Paper, Maurice Falk Institute for Economic Research, Israel (83.05): 33



The paper analyzes short-run fluctuations of the birth rate in a developing country using an explicit optimizing model derived from the theory of household behaviour underlying many cross-sectional studies of fertility. The focus is on the timing and intertemporal substitution of births, and a dynamic economic model of fertility is specified and estimated. The model is developed within the framework of a farm household in an agrarian economy.
