Abstract

The relationship between fertility and socioeconomic determinants can be influenced by social behavior at a local level. Using the geographical distance to approximate the social effects, this paper analyzes the spatial heterogeneity of the impact of economic conditions on departmental fertility in Argentina. Using geographically weighted regressions, the role of social interactions is confirmed in the local variability of the explanatory factors. The main determinant for the level of fertility is education, followed by poverty and marital status. In the change of the fertility level, marital status appears as the main factor, followed by education.
