There is no printed copy available to order.


The examination of socioeconomic differentials in fertility and their changing nature are essential to understanding the fertility transition in developing countries. The primary objective of this study is to examine these differentials in 33 countries where DHS surveys were conducted in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Several measures of fertility are presented according to women's level of education, current work status, residence, migration status, and husband's education and occupation.
