Fertility Control Early in Marriage in Ireland a Century Ago

Cormac Ó Gráda () and Niall Duffy

Journal of Population Economics, 1995, vol. 8, issue 4, 423-31

Abstract: Data was extracted from the 1911 Irish manuscript census to study the regional variation in the extent and character of family limitation strategies in Ireland a century ago. Regression analysis of the data shows evidence of "spacing" in both urban and rural Ireland. Further analysis of the so-called child "replacement" problem also produces results consistent with "spacing."
