Description

Abstract This paper studies the effects of contraceptive access on economic growth in developing nations. More specifically, it analyzes how increasing the number of women living in Middle Eastern and North African countries with access to contraceptives would influence the overall economic growth of the region. The hypothesis states that increasing the number of women using contraceptives from the years 1976-2016 would positively affect the economic growth from the years 1977-2017 in these nations. At the conclusion of the study, the paper finds that, after controlling for a one-year lag, contraceptive access significantly increases the economic growth in the MENA region.
