This paper will try to describe and analyze the effect of the economic crisis on the fertility behavior by educational attainment and employment status in Southern Europe, using as an example one the most deprived areas in the South of Spain: Andalusia. Using the Longitudinal Database of the Population of Andalusia we estimated the fertility of women with permanent residence in Andalusia during the period 2002-2013 using educational attainment and employment status reported in the 2011 census.
