What is the role of government policy in enhancing fertility in Latvia? In a recent FROGEE brief, we show that over the years government spending on these programs closely followed the GDP path (in contrast with Estonia and Lithuania, where it has been much less pro-cyclical), which makes it practically impossible to disentangle the effect of the policies from the effect of the economic cycle.
