Overview

Applying event history models to data from the Spanish Family and Ferlity Survey, this book tries to provide an answer to the specific research question about whether all women forgo and/or delay motherhood in Spain as the result of better education and improved career opportunities in recent decades, or whether women's demographic behavior differs depending on their education.
