This article examines both behavioral and attitudinal measures of women's roles and the interactions between them to determine their influence on married women's fertility intentions. Using the 1970 National Fertility Survey, a generalized least squares procedure particularly appropriate for investigating interaction effects finds that the main effects of labor force participation, education, age, and sex role attitudes and selected interaction effects are important factors in predicting low fertility intentions.
