Abstract

Although considerable disagreement about fertility goals exists among spouses, there islittle evidence that these result from differences in the relative status of spouses. Data from the 1988 Ghana Demographic and Health Survey are used here to show that a higher relative occupational status of women inclines couples away from agreement on having more children. The research and policy implications of these findings are discussed.
