Does agglomeration discourage fertility? Evidence from Japanese general social surveys cumulative data 2000-2010

要旨:This paper investigates whether agglomeration discourages households’ fertility decision making. A theoretical prediction shows that higher costs of education and housing for rearing children in denser areas have negative effects on fertility. In an empirical analysis, we exploit social survey data to control for households’ unobservable characteristics. Furthermore, we control for costs of migration, which also discourages fertility. We offer robust evidence that agglomeration measured by population density discourages fertility. We also find that rural-urban migrants have fewer children than stayers in rural and urban areas, suggesting that households who move to urban areas are strongly affected by costs arising from not only agglomeration but also migration. On the other hand, there is no significant difference in the number of children between urban-rural migrants and stayers in urban and rural areas.

Locational signaling and agglomeration (with Chia-Ming Yu)
Marcus Berliant(Washington University in St. Louis)
京都大学経済研究所本館1階 第二共同研究室
【応用ミクロ経済学ワークショップと共催】 要旨:Agglomeration can be caused by asymmetric information and a locational signaling effect: The location choice of workers signals their productivity to potential employers. The cost of a signal is the cost of housing at that location. When workers' marginal willingness to pay for housing is negatively correlated with their productivity, only the core-periphery (partially stratified) equilibria are stable. When workers' marginal willingness to pay for housing and their productivity are positively correlated, there is no core-periphery equilibrium. The urban wage premium is explained when there is core-periphery equilibrium. Furthermore, location can at best be an approximate rather than a precise sieve for high-skill workers.
