An analysis examining the relationship between state-perpetrated repression, economic growth, and total fertility rates. Total fertility rates vary across the world for a number of reasons. The level of state-perpetrated human rights violations also vary and may influence total fertility rate. Existing models of fertility can be modified by including state-perpetrated repression as a determinant of fertility. Ordinary least squares regression analysis will be used on panel data to examine data on multiple countries over a 10 year time period. By classifying countries by wealth, the relationship between state-perpetrated repression, economic growth, and total fertility rates will be made clear and will allow for a more complete understanding of overall population growth patterns.
