White, Lynn K.; Kim, Hyunju
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v49 n2 p272-79 May 1987
Interviewed 1,020 spouses in 1980 and 1983 to test implications of exchange theory for fertility decision. Results suggest significant nonlinear component to determinants of fertility, especially factors related to women's roles. Neither sex-role traditionalism nor wives' achievement in nonfamilial roles had simple negative effect on fertility; both encouraged parenthood role, discouraged large families. (Author/NB)
