Abstract
In order to explore the factors that affect the fertility intention for a second child, this article explored from the perspective of education, combined with questionnaire survey data and used descriptive statistical and multiple linear regression from four dimensions. It found that with the focus of a family changing from single pursuit of children in the past to the improvement of children’s quality, the expectations for children’s education have increased, and so the children’s education cost has also increased. However, the sharing of education costs is mainly the responsibility of each family in China. The increase in education costs makes the family burden heavier, which affects the willingness of bearing the second child. At the same time, whether the level of government education service can meet social demands also has an impact on the second child’s fertility intention. The result indicated that education has an influence on fertility intention for a second child, and at present most studies measure fertility intention from the perspective of cost. Therefore, the result of this research enriches the factors that affect the second child’s fertility intention.
