Abstract: This paper analyzes the relationship between total fertility rates and other socio-economic variables. The main results are against two myths: rural areas have higher total fertility rates than urban ones, and economic inequality harms total fertility rates. The key is a spatial panel data analysis with the lag between inception and birth. Here, spatial panel data analysis improves the effciency of explanatory variables, and the lag produces a different result from former papers.
