초록
The value of children (VOC) refers to the perceived benefits and costs of having children. The VOC has been used as a predictor for fertility motivations and trends. Arnold et al., in their The Value of Children (1975), examined the perceptions people have of having children in economic, social and psychological dimensions. Economic value refers to the material benefits and costs individuals can expect from having children. Social value represents the perceived social advantages and disadvantages from having children. Psychological value refers to emotional states which parents expect from having children. This study looks at the cross-national differences in the VOC and factors affecting it.
