Efectos de los Ingresos del Hogar, Educación de la Mujer y Participación Laboral Femenina Sobre la Fecundidad Ecuatoriana

Cintya Lanchimba, Juan Pablo Diaz-Sanchez


This paper studies the economic determinants of fecundity. In the analytical part, authors have analyzed the vast economic literature devoted to the study of fecundity, from which several testable hypotheses that relates it to household income, education level of the mother and her occupation have been derived. The article provides empirical evidence from 46,716 Ecuadorian women between 12 and 49 in 2006 and 2014. In particular, it was found, through count data models, that years of mother education and household income have a negative effect on fecundity.
