Micro Determinants of Human Fertility: Study of Selected Physiological and Behavioural Variables in SC and ST Population

Published By: Gujarat Institute of Development Research (GIDR) | Published Date: January, 01 , 2005

This paper is an attempt to study plausible causal relationship of women’s physiology and behaviour components with fertility in more or less non-industrial rural populations in Orissa, an Eastern Indian state. The behavioural factors of women such as higher desired family size and longer perceived ideal birth interval have been consistently associated with lower fertility. The verbatim and incidents presented in this paper imply that on one hand the child survival is at demand and on the other, there seem to have a need for access to controlled and intended fertility.
