Literature Review
Definition of variables
In this research paper the Birth Rate is used as a synonym for fertility rate and defined as “Total fertility rate represents the number of children that would be born to a woman if she were to live to the end of her childbearing years and bear children in accordance with current age-specific fertility rates” by the World Bank, where this data was taken. In order to get an understanding of the different factors that affect the birth rate different previous studies where taken into account to identify independent variables that have been identified in earlier studies to have an effect on the birth rate. The next part of the research paper will look into the results of these studies. Japan

* One of the main reasons offered for decline of fertility rate in Japan has been the postponement of marriage among young women due to increase in higher education rate. The study has been to investigate the relationship between the growth of women with a higher education and the decline in the fertility rate. In considering the influence of higher education on reproductive behavior, it is necessary to closely investigate the question of whether higher education has a direct effect on fertility or whether it is an indirect effect of other socioeconomic parameters, such as social class or work status. Data for the analysis is taken from the 1995 Social Stratification and Mobility (SSM) survey. * The discussion is divided into two major parts. The first part considers the marital and reproductive behavior associated with family background, educational credentials, and first job as social stratification variables. The second part takes up changes in values as a consequence of increased education and examines the relationship between views on the sexual division of labor and men’s participation in housework. One of the most important findings of this study is the effect of age on fertility. It has been confirmed that higher education is of great importance in reaching the life stage of marriage, the decision of whether to give birth or not, and root cause in declining birth rate in Japan, which is strongly influenced by age at marriage. Although it has been proposed that men’s participation in housework be promoted to confront the declining birth rate. USA

Fertility rate in US is dropped for the second consecutive year i.e. reduced by 2% from 2007 to 2008 and followed by 2.6% from 2008 to 2009. According to new federal statistics released that the nation's economic troubles are affecting the birth rate in the...
