摘要:We develop a generalized theory of rationed fertility to analyze treatment effect heterogeneity in the child quantity-quality (QQ) tradeoff.An exogenous increase in fertility can either be desired---that is,a move toward optimal fertility;or undesired---that is,a move away from optimal fertility.Our theory derives a new positive rationing income effect on child quality for desired fertility increases,but a negative rationing income effect for undesired fertility increases.We explore the natural experiment of twin births and China's “One-child” policy to examine differential treatment effects between desired and undesired fertility increases.Consistent with our theoretical predictions on the rationing income effect,the estimated QQ effect for undesired fertility increases is negative,and the estimated QQ effect for desired fertility increases is positive.Our study highlights the importance of distinguishing between desired and undesired changes when evaluating social programs.
