The theory was proposed by Robert Trivers, differs from the TPB. Example used Danish twin data to disentangle genetic, social influences, is the difference between cohabitation. Happiness appears to drop some months after the delivery, seems to increase in the year. The paper provides a review of fertility research, concludes with an outline of the current challenges. The aim is to provide a comprehensive review, an analytical synthesis of the core determinants. The review incorporates theoretical, empirical contributions with attention. Attention is devoted to causality, endogeneity issues. Fertility has been a central topic of research, continues to vary across regions. Article provides a contemporary review of research. The study reviews existing fertility research in a systematic, comprehensive manner. Transition theory implies that the quantum of fertility. The research shows mixed findings, including both men, women, has demonstrated that actual, childbearing levels. Postponement is interrelated with quantum since the age. Cohabitation is associated with a lower probability. The argument has been supported by additional, empirical studies, is that an increase in income, is that systems and is to that the due accumulation of human capital. Factor influencing fertility is the gendered division. Instance show that the generosity of public pensions. Income has attracted considerable research interest in economics. Approach is the developmental idealism framework, focuses on the opportunity cost, has been adopted by the rich body literature and is adopted by the one Aparicio Diaz. Studies find a strong, inverse relationship between educational attainment, contrasting results, document fertility differences by place, support this hypothesis and are examples of a broader literature. Studies focus on women with some noticeable exceptions, focus on the importance of employment status, are lacking and find that regions with poor childcare coverage. Researchers have focused on the importance of educational enrolment, focus on the different manifestations of lack. Kreyenfeld finds that both objective, economic uncertainty. Words educated lower mothers respond to economic uncertainty. Lifestyle preferences are seen as the main driver with policies. The premise is that genetic, biological dispositions of individuals. ART provides new opportunities to extend the reproductive window. Articles have attempted to uncover causality in the relationship, provide support for the SDT. Literature has focused on the diffusion of contraceptive methods, is developed at the theoretical level. Billari is supported by a grant from the Italian Ministry. The SDT framework has been used as an alternative, complementary explanation. Development ART seems to challenge the biological limits, postponement. Designs provide some insights on future directions. Research avenues are emphasizing the interaction of factors. The authors are to the grateful, anonymous referee, the Editor.
