A Comparison of the Validity of Two Explanatory Models Relating Female Income to Fertility
Cohen, Patricia; Gaughran, Edward
Multivariate Behavioral Research, 12, 3, 373-95, Jul 77
The demonstrated negative relationship between women's income and fertility has been treated as a consequence of economic loss associated with maternity. A plausible alternative interpretation attributes a causal role to the psychic benefits which may be associated with women's employment. Research findings presented support the latter interpretation.
