Religion, Religiosity and Fertility Desires: Evidence from a Longitudinal Study of American College Graduates

By Steven M. Cohen, Paul Ritterband

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, January 1980

In this paper the authors address two problems: first the attempt to account for differences in desired family size by religion; second, they examine the routes to group mean desire family size. The research is based upon a secondary analysis of data collected by the National Opinion Research Center in its 1961 study of graduates of American colleges and universities.
