Background: Female labor supply has been changed dramatically in the recent yr. In this study, we examined the effects
of development on the relationship between fertility and female labor supply.
Methods: We used data of population and housing census of Iran and estimated three separate models. To do this we
employed Logistic Regressions (BLR).
Results: The estimation results of our study showed that there was a negative relationship between fertility rate and
female labor supply and there are some differences for this relationship in three models.
Conclusion: When fertility rate increases, FLS would decreases. In addition, for higher fertility rates, the woman
might be forced to work more because of the economic conditions of her family; and negative coefficients of the fertility
rate effects on FLS would increase with a diminishing rate.
