The authors investigate whether the educational and child labour effects of realized fertility uncovered by the study reported in Ch. 5 can be given a causal interpretation. They then go on to review the available evidence on the fertility effects of a number of policies (including public pensions) and variables (including wage and interest rates). In both parts of the chapter, they pay special attention to the question whether fertility is indeed endogenous as assumed in the theoretical analysis of Chs 2 and 3, and apparently confirmed by the empirical analysis of Ch. 5.
