Ideational Influences on Marriage and Childbearing (ICPSR 34479) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

Collecting new data in the Chitwan Valley Family Study (CVPS), this project investigates the influence of ideational factors on both nuptiality and fertility in Nepal. This research examines: (1) how ideational factors influence marriage behavior, focusing primarily on the transition into first marital union; (2) how ideational factors intersect with socioeconomic structures to influence entrance into marriage; (3) how ideational factors influence fertility, considering both childbearing and the use of contraception; (4) how ideational, social, and economic structures intersect and combine to influence contraception and childbearing; and (5) how these ideational influences vary by both gender and age, and by husband-wife dynamics for fertility decisions.
