Handbook of development economics by Hollis Burnley Chenery( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For this Handbook authors known to have different views regarding the nature of development economics have been selected. The Handbook is organised around the implications of different sets of assumptions and their associated research programs. It is divided into three volumes, each with three parts which focus on the broad processes of development. In Volume 2 the emphasis shifts towards policy issues. Techniques of resource allocation and policy planning at both macro and micro levels are discussed in the first part of this volume. The changing international economy within which national development takes place is an important aspect and this is dealt with in the middle section of the book. The role of the state is at least as important in the early stages of development as it is later on, and included in the last section of the Handbook is a comparison of the experience of countries pursuing different development strategies and draws lessons for policy

Investment in women's human capital by T. Paul Schultz( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aan de hand van dertien opstellen wordt nagegaan hoe de investeringen in menselijk kapitaal verdeeld worden tussen mannen en vrouwen. Klassieke voorbeelden van investeringen in menselijk kapitaal zijn voeding, gezondheidszorg, onderwijs en mobiliteit. Het is een economische wetmatigeheid dat duurzame groei enkel kan worden bereikt wanneer die investeringen op peil blijven. Met andere woorden: als men inzicht verwerft in de verdeling van investeringen in menselijk kapitaal, krijgt men tegelijk zicht op de verschillen in bijdrage van mannen en vrouwen in de economische ontwikkeling van een maatschappij en in de verschillen in welvaart tussen mannen en vrouwen onderling. In het boek wordt naast een vergelijking van de omgang met menselijk kapitaal tussen noorden en zuiden ook gezorgd voor een grote dosis empirisch materiaal, afkomstig uit onderzoeken in India, Kenia, Taïwan, Indonesië, Ivoorkust en Brazilië

Handbook of development economics by Jere Richard Behrman( )

23 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of development economics has evolved since volume 3 of the Handbook of Development Economics was published more than a decade ago. Volume 4 takes stock of some of the newer trends and their implications for research in the field and our understanding of economic development. The handbook is divided into four sections which reflect these developments, of which the first deals with agricultural and rural development. Section two is concerned with developments in the theory and evidence regarding public goods and political economy. The third section is focused on the behavior of households and individuals regarding various aspects of human capital investments, in the face of the various constraints, particularly market incentives and public goods. The final section contains papers that describe the different methods now available, both experimental and non-experimental, to conduct program evaluations, as well as describing papers that implement these methods. The authors of the chapters are all experts in the fields they survey and extend, and this volume promises to be an invaluable addition to the Handbooks in Economics series and a useful reference to graduate students, researchers and professionals in the field of development economics

15 editions published between 1969 and 1971 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A simultaneous equation model for various demographic economic behavior linked to the family formation process is described. It predicts fertility, regional migration, personal incomes, legal and consensual marriages, and women's participation in the labor force as jointly determined functions of death rates, industrial structure, education, and unemployment. The model is based on data obtained from contemporary census and vital statistics for 75 [municipios] of Puerto Rico. 19 pp

The effectiveness of family planning in Taiwan : a proposal for a new evaluation methodology by T. Paul Schultz( Book )

9 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper presents some tentative statistical evidence on the association between regional birth rates and family planning program activity in Taiwan as an illustration of a different approach to evaluation of program effectiveness. Most of the analysis dealt with the first two years, 1966 and 1967, in which the national program appeared to have a significant effect on birth rates. (Author)
Fertility determinants : a theory, evidence, and an application to policy evaluation by T. Paul Schultz( Book )

8 editions published between 1974 and 1975 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report surveys the first generation of theoretical and empirical research on the determinants of parent "demand" for children. A large fraction of this literature was first published as Rand reports and papers. The pragmatic question discussed here is the strengths and shortcomings of the state of the art in economic analysis of fertility determinants. Efforts to view fertility as a response to time and resource constraints and market determined exchange prices have begun to yield a substantial and largely consistent literature of empirical investigations. Section 2 outlines the evaluation of this framework for analyzing fertility, and Section 4 evaluates the estimated magnitude and importance of several of the apparently causal relationships assumed by this framework. Section 3 briefly reviews the problems of statistically modeling reproductive behavior and estimating model parameters. In Section 5 it is argued that if the evaluation of population policy interventions is to become a more precise science, analysis should focus on fertility and not contraceptive services. Section 6 summarizes the empirical results from various evaluation studies of the Taiwan Family Planning Program. The final section considers how the demand approach to fertility determinants might help in the future to choose among broad types of policy interventions. (Author/JM)
