Abstract

The aim of this paper is to determine the significant variables in the fertility patterns of the Roma population in Spain. Family and home production are two of the idiosyncratic features of this minority group, and our theoretical and empirical analyses take account of both, as well as other variables that appear in the existing literature. Our main insights are that a greater bargaining power of parents, with respect to their adult children, and a greater involvement of adult children in the production of the family good, are major contributory factors in increasing the number of children.
