Do people with more time and money tend to have more children?

If people didn't need to care about building a career and had all their necessities (food, housing, security) covered, could we expect them to start producing more children? I see Japan as the counterexample of this, and it is having a population crisis, but places like Scandinavia, which seem to me like perfect places to settle down and have plenty of kids don't seem to be undergoing a population boom either.


Sorry for an identical question. My first question has a mistake in the title and I am unable to delete it.

Update 2:

@Zirp India might not need a population boom, but a country like Russia would easily be able to support triple the current population.

    nope, because kids are money and time vacuums

    No. In general people with less education or less access to social security (health-insurance, pensions) tend to have more children.

    With over 7 billion people on the planet, nobody needs a population-boom

    my thinking has been people have kids to pass the time although don't want to admit it, life gets boring when is just u and the partner, so they have kids to reduce the boredom and avoid a divorce.Especially social people, extrovert people,outgoing people,they need kids to pass the time.
