This chapter evaluates studies on the links between household demographics and welfare, focusing on factors affecting gender relations in society and within households. The studies reveal an interplay of forces that are far more complex than the links between family size and welfare outcomes. They identify reasons why parental expectations about the benefits and costs of child rearing may not be realized, or lead to a decline in their own and their children’s well-being.

Keywords:   household demographics, welfare, poverty, gender relations
