Abstract
One of the topics that has generated discussions and focuses on demographic theory is undoubtedly the treatment of fertility rates, another important number of studies have incorporated different methods for measuring behaviors in count data, such as Poisson models, also used in the present
document. On the other hand, by using panel data, we estimate a random
effects model and evaluate the determinants of the behavior of the fertility rate for a specific region of Latin America, the Andean countries such as Venezuela,Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina and Chile. Given the fact that there are many ways to measure fertility we use a combination of econometric methods, among them, the impulse response functions that will serve... (More)
