Using the Theory of Planned Behaviour to Study Fertility Intentions in Romania
International Conference on Applied Statistics (ICAS) 2013, 2014
URL, JabRef BibTex, Abstract
Fertility intentions are considered an important determinant of behaviour. Using binary logistic regression on a sample of 1851 women aged 18-44 years from the Generations and Gender Survey 2005 wave in Romania, the present paper analyses the factors influencing intentions to have a child on the short-term. The results indicate that age and the number of children already born to a respondent, together with her attitude and the woman's perception of her significant others’ attitude towards having a birth in the near future are important in determining the odds that a woman will intend to perform the analysed behaviour. Also, the use of contraception plays an important role, but its impact is complex.
