Reference Group Support for Voluntary Childlessness: Evidence for Conformity
Houseknecht, Sharon K.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, 39, 2, 285-291, May 77
This study tested four hypotheses demonstrating reference group support is an influential factor in deciding not to have children. Results show the majority of women who wished to remain childless had support for that decision although they characteristically had fewer reference groups than females who looked forward to having children.
