Abstract:

The objective of this report is to use large-scale, cross-nationally comparable survey data to study the levels, trends, and determinants of unintended fertility in developing countries. The report is based on analysis of data from Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) conducted in 10 selected countries that have participated in the DHS program at least twice. The countries are Columbia, the Dominican Republic, Egypt, Ghana, Indonesia, Kenya, Morocco, Peru, Senegal, and Zimbabwe.
