About this book

Economic Equality and Fertility in Developing Countries briefly reviews sociological, economic, and demographic literature pertaining to the relationship between income and fertility in developed and developing countries. He presents a conceptual framework to examine how fertility responds to changes in the distribution of household income.

The analysis of data from Puerto Rico, Korea, and rural India is carefully executed, and conclusive policy implications are discussed. Economic Equality and Fertility in Developing Countries was originally published in 1979.

"This book is likely to become a standard work, to be referred to time and again by scholars and policy makers in those fields concerned with interaction between population, development, and social justice."
- David E. Horlacher, Susquehanna University
