About Annual Meeting
Session Submission Type: Paper Session 100min
These five papers investigate various aspects of the social context in which individuals make decisions about fertility -- intimate unions, religion, immigration, and policies. The papers emphasize the issues that individuals consider when they make decisions about entering parenthood, transitioning to a second birth, and their completed family size.
The presider will provide a brief overview linking the papers, followed by the presentations. There will be ample time for audience discussion.
