Tom Vogl: Differential Fertility, Human Capital, & Development
Lam, David, and Jeffrey A. Miron. 1991. "Seasonality of Births in Human Populations." Social Biology, 38: 51-78.
The seasonality of human births was studied in order to provide an overview of the basic facts about the seasonality of births and to survey the leading hypotheses about birth seasonality that have appeared in the literature and to discuss the consistency of these hypotheses with observed seasonal patterns.
