Title Socio-economic status proxies in studies of fertility in developing countries: Measures and methods
Publication (Day/Month/Year) 2009
This paper explores the different measures and methods used to integrate socio-economic status into fertility analysis. The most common current practice is to create a single proxy summary measure and enter it as an independent variable in a multiple regression. I compare the consequences of using the different proxies on the estimated impact of socio-economic status and the other determinants of fertility.
