...Suddhendu Biswas Abstract The purpose of the present communication is to generalize a model of Brass’s (1958), relating to the probability distribution of births to mothers with completed fertility. A simple method of estimating the parameters of the model, based on successive iterations, has been...

... that equation may be taken as a second approximation to r(k). The steps may be repeated as many times as is necessary to insure that the solutions ob- tained at successive iterations agree up to the required number of decimal places. Onee the solutions for r(l), r(2), r(k) are at hand, the solutions for R (1...

Given high levels of spousal resemblance in education and income, advantage (or disadvantage) is concentrated within couples ( Schwartz...
