However, because these job characteristics are available only for workers who actually have jobs, we test their effect in separate models including only employed individuals.

.... An alternative perspective is offered by neoclassical economic models of fertility, which argue that increases in women’s schooling lead to wage increases and, correspondingly, increases in the opportunity costs of having a large number of children (Becker 1981 ; Becker and Lewis 1973 ). This increase...

... for key omitted or difficult-to-measure factors of production. Insofar as there are diminishing returns to these factors, the sign on YIN, should be negative.
