Sectoral Reviews II
In this chapter, the discussion moves on to a consideration of the relationships between the status and employment of women and fertility and of that between education and fertility. In these sectors, as in those just discussed, assessment of the effects on fertility is enormously complicated by the fact that these effects are essentially indirect, as Cochrane (1979, 1983), for example, has demonstrated so effectively in the case of education, which has been widely regarded as perhaps the most strategic development-linked variable affecting fertility.
