This book examines economic aspects of the role of women’s education in the postponement of maternity in ten industrialized countries or regions: Sweden, Norway, Italy, Spain, Ireland, the Netherlands and Western Germany, the Czech Republic and Eastern Germany, and the United States. Each is investigated using survey data relating age at motherhood with the investment in education of the mother. The result is a detailed picture of the economics of fertility decisions.
