A Family of Flexible Parametric Duration Functions and their Applications to Modeling Child-Spacing in Sub-Saharan Africa

Abstract [en]

Examining the dynamics of child spacing is of interest for several reasons. First, several inferences are consistent with the view that in much of the developing world, women with large families have shorter birth intervals than those with smaller families. There is thus an indication of an inverse relationship between spacing and completed or cumulative fertility. The spacing of births also has a significant bearing on maternal and child health through the dynamics of sibling competition, maternal depletion and interval effect hypotheses.
