- Real estate, as an important pillar of China's economic development, is closely associated with the living conditions of residents. In recent years, more and more attention from scholars have been paid to the rapid rise of housing price, however, the related research on the floating trend of housing price from the family angle is still very scarce in China. In this regard, this paper focuses on the fertility rate, and firstly analyzes the relationship between fertility rate and housing price. Then a hypothesis would be assumed that the housing price has a negative correlation on fertility rate. Moreover, the cross weight coefficient method in the least square method will be applied to conduct an empirical analysis by adopting the panel data in 31 provinces of China from 2000 to 2015. Furthermore, this paper will divide the panel date into three economic groups according to per capita GDP through specific analysis. The results show that there is no obvious negative correlation between housing price and fertility rate in whole penal data from 2000 to 2015, however, the relationship between housing price and fertility rate in two periods change significantly from positive to negative. According to specific analysis in three economic groups, when the housing price increase gradually, the fertility rate shows a downward trends in PGDP>10000 and PGDP<5000 groups and presents upward trends in 5000
