讲座题目:Housing Wealth Shocks and Fertility Choice: Evidence from China

 

摘要:This paper examines the impact of housing wealth on fertility decisions by exploiting housing wealth variation supplied by the recent housing boom in China.  Theoretically, we hypothesize that an increase in home prices will not only have a positive wealth effect and a negative living cost effect on fertility, but also reduce demand for children by substituting for expected old-age support from children. Using data from the CFPS 2010–2016, we find that for a 100,000 yuan increase in lagged home values, the likelihood that home-owning women give a birth falls by 5.8%. We also show that an increase housing wealth leads to a reduction in total fertility rate and that the fertility decisions of women who have higher household income, more education, no siblings, and live in urban areas are more responsive to housing wealth growth. We further investigate the underlying mechanisms and the results are consistent with our hypotheses about the living cost effect and old-age security effect of house price increase. These findings have important policy implication given the low fertility rate in China.
