Does Female Education Affect Fertility Behaviour in Pakistan
AbstractThe study explores the relationship between female education and fertility in Pakistan and is based on data from the Pakistan Fertility Survey 1975. Only slight differentials were identified between women with no education and those who had primary or less schooling. However, women with more than primary education had notably lower fertility. Also the role of the intermediate variables such as proportions married, length of breast-feeding and contraceptive use had significant associations with female education.
