Abstract: The paper is concerned with two theories that proport to explain fertility variations in developing countries. The first of these theories is based on supply or naturalfertility considerations whilethe second looks to (the underlying) costs and benefits of children as one source explanation for fertility differences. These theories indicate that demand consideration do explain some of the systematic variation in fertility even among "noncontracepting" populations.
