dc.description.abstractThe results of the Demographic Health Survey (DHS) reveal thatwomen in Ethiopia prefer fewer children than men, which can be explainedby the greater costs that women have to incur from pregnancy,delivery and care for children. In view of differing preferences it is yetnot clear which factors determine the final decision. The aim of thisstudy is to shed light on the impact of different bargaining weights onfamily planning within married couples in rural Ethiopia. Bargainingover fertility can be split into two parts: spacing between births andthe number of children. Building on the intrahousehold bargainingframework I investigate both aspects. Applying multistate and countdata models I test the hypothesis that women?s bargaining power isnegatively related to the number of children and positively to the periodlength between adjacent births using a detailed data set from ruralEthiopia. Both hypotheses find support from the data.en_US
