[dagger] Assuming that observation i refers to country j located in region k, PMna is the proportion of non-AIDS related deaths among women aged 15-49 that are maternal deaths, GFR is the general fertility rate and SAB is the proportion of deliveries for which a skilled birth attendant is present, the estimated regression model was as follows:
* For instance, In Asia, where the maximum percentage Increase In the average length of a woman's reproductive lifetime occurred, the change observed was an annual increase of 0.1%, whereas the MMR, the general fertility rate and lifetime risk of maternal death declined annually by 4.1%, 2.3% and 6.2%, respectively.
In contrast, a similar increase in MATLV is shown to have virtually no net impact on the general fertility rate. The effects on labor-force participation rates for women in the prime childbearing years fall between these extremes: the hypothesized ten percent rise in MATLV produces net gains of somewhat under two percent in LFP.
where IMR, LFP, and GFR are infant mortality rates, labor-force participation rates for women in the prime childbearing ages (20-34), and general fertility rates, respectively; MATLV gauges weeks of paid maternal leave; and the X's represent intersecting sets of "control" variables.
where [F.sub.it] is the general fertility rate, for ith country in the t-th time-period, and [x.sub.jit] are the jth explanatory variables.
General Fertility Rate (GFR) is defined as the annual number of births per 1000 women of child-bearing age.
We also tried general fertility rates and found very similar results to those reported later in this paper.
