Publisher Description

We develop an empirical model of the interaction of rural fertility and rural-urban migration which incorporates the effects of landholding patterns. Cross-section data for 26 developing countries are used to test the model. The statistical results support the hypothesis of a positive relationship between fertility and outmigration in the rural sector and lend credence to some of the propositions regarding the impact of landholding patterns. A reduced form of the model is derived from the statistical results, and its policy implications are considered. I. INTRODUCTION
