The paper discusses the application of discrete time regression models to demographic life history data. General conditions are stated under which the likelihood expression obtains a simple Bernoulli product form. As an illustration, such a model with a logistic link function is fitted to Swedish third births data, earlier studied by B. and J. Hoem.We also discuss briefly aspects relating to computation and the necessary software.
