Abstract

This paper presents a new method for estimating the time of the onset of marital fertility decline. The proposed method produces a maximum likelihood least squares estimate for the point of change in a sequence of marital fertility indexes. It is suggested that the proposed method has certain advantages over previous attempts to estimate the time of the onset of marital fertility decline.
