Male education, Son preference, and Contraceptive use among men who want to stop childbearing

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The study of son preference in India has been the focus of research for a few decades. The desire for sons leads to unfavorable consequences for daughters such as unequal access to resources, abortion, and female infanticide. Work on men's education and son preference is relatively scarce and this paper contributes to existing literature by exploring this relationship.I use the National Family and Health Survey-III to examine fertility behavior as a measure of son preference.I look at both temporary and permanent measures of contraception and find that being educated leads to a weaker preference of sons.
