Gender differences in high-school dropout: vulnerability and adolescent fertility in Chile
ResumenThe relationship between fertility and gender has been the object of vibrant debates in developed societies. Under the umbrella of the 'gender revolution,' scholars have theorized that greater gender-egalitarianism will lead to higher fertility in low-fertility countries, paying particular attention to how men and women perform their roles in the public and the private spheres. Is this premise applicable to Latin-American countries whose path towards low fertility might have been different from those in other developed regions in terms of gender-role change and socioeconomic development? Do egalitarian / traditional men and women in Latin America meet the same pattern in terms of fertility preferences? We use data from the 2012 International Social Survey Program (ISSP) in four different Latin American countries to explore the link between gender-role attitudes in public and private spheres and fertility ideals among men and women. Our first results suggest that, with interesting exceptions, higher fertility ideals are more present among traditional respondents for the Latin American countries in our sample
