Notes
  • This paper is an empirical investigation of the assumption that parents who carry more dominated cultural traits in a population and wish to transmit these traits to their offsprings, do socialize more their children, i.e., they intensify parent-child relation. We focus on fertility preference, which we treat as a cultural trait, following the sociological literature. Inspired by the recent economic theory of cultural transmission, we use data on married Egyptian women to test the above assumption. Under the reserve that the effects of parent-children socialization cannot be separated in the present context from the effects of population policy, we find that our data do support the above assumption.
