The hypothesis which more educated women experience less fertility has motivated many researches. Current study is also carried out in the same direction of those investigations. The theoretical model is designed based on microeconomics of fertility that show since the substitution effect of rising female schooling surpasses the income effect, the presence of negative relation between the level of education and fertility is more likely. Accordingly, we employed a sample including 1294 observations in Tehran. The results suggest that the fertility declines when women's education increases.
