Mahran, Maher, Fatma H. El-Zanaty, and Ann A. Way. 1995. Perspectives on Fertility and Family Planning in Egypt: Results of Further Analysis of the 1992 Egypt Demographic and Health Survey. DHS Further Analysis Reports No. 13. Calverton, Maryland, USA: Macro International
The Egyptian family planning program has made substantial progress in supporting the efforts of Egyptian families to meet their reproductive goals. A reason for this success has been the considerable body of population research that has been undertaken over the past several decades. This research has helped the program to monitor the impact of its efforts and has also helped to identify key areas for further intervention. This volume, which includes eight studies reporting on the results of the 1992 Egypt Demographic and Health Survey, provides further valuable perspectives on the fertility and family planning situation in Egypt. A basic theme in the papers included in this volume is the magnitude of the change that has occurred in fertility and family planning behavior in Egypt since 1980.The obvious challenge is how to sustain this progress. In addressing that challenge, the family program must address the diversity of fertility attitudes and needs in Egypt.
