This study uses Demographic and Health Survey data from 36 developing countries to address the question of whether the socioeconomic determinants of child nutritional status differ across urban and rural areas. The purpose is to answer the broader question of why child malnutrition rates are lower in . Using a cross-country data drawn from 40 countries and a multiple regression analysis, this paper examines the impact of birth control devices on the rate of fertility in sub-Saharan Africa. Our a-priori expectations are that the more women used birth control devices, the less will be the fertility rate in subSaharan Africa.

The present study estimates the fertility-inhibiting effects of the four important proximate determinants, namely marriage, contraception, induced abortion and post-partum infecundability in Viet Nam. It is based on using data obtained from the and round of .   Africa is often seen as a continent of mass migration and displacement caused by poverty, violent conflict and environmental stress. Yet such perceptions are based on stereotypes rather than theoretically informed empirical research.

Data from the Uganda Demographic and Health Survey () was used in this study. This survey was a follow up on the /89, and surveys, which covered the whole of Uganda. From the analysis in Chapter 4, it is clear that fertility declined substantially between the times of the Kenya Fertility Survey (KFS, –) and Kenya Demographic and Health Survey (KDHS, –).This chapter takes a closer look at the proximate determinants that contributed to this decline by using the Bongaarts framework to quantify the effects on fertility of marriage patterns.

Fertility levels in sub-Saharan Africa are among the highest in the world. As a result, recent fertility declines in a few countries have gained the attention of researchers and policy makers, and have renewed interest in the factors affecting fertility.

Jan ; Documentos de Economía. A Comparative Study of Socioeconomic and Demographic Determinants of Fertility in Togo and Uganda. A Comparative Study of Fertility. Fertility is one of the major elements in population dynamics that has the highest significant contribution towards population size and structure in the world.

In Kenya, fertility levels have been on the decline from approximately children in to children in but still, it is considered high compared to the country’s target of by The goal of achieving health for all by the year has instigated numerous studies on the determinants of health.

In this paper, we re-evaluate two models in which infant mortality — across twenty-eight low- and middle-income African states — is explained by socio-economic, demographic, medical, environmental and political factors. Marriage has traditionally been early and universal in sub-Saharan Africa and this has been blamed for high fertility and the failure to achieve most MDGs including the eradication of extreme poverty and hunger, achieving the goal of universal primary education, promotion of gender equality and empowerment of women, reduction of childhood mortality, improvement in quality of maternal health.
