Abstract

A major concept in economics is the law of supply and demand, and individuals demand families. The average family size in the United States is 3.12; however, there is much variation from family to family in regions across the United States. In this project, I perform an econometric analysis to find the determinants of family size. The most prominent variable in determining family size is the size of the family in which an individual was raised.
