Reproductive behaviour in Pakistan: insights from the population, labour force, and migration survey 1979-80
This paper is in two parts. Part I is essentially a comparison with the results of the Pakistan Fertility Survey(1970-75) and basically a few themes have been thrown up. One is whether the 12-percent decline in fertility claimed by the PFS can be substantiated. The second presents multivariate analysis and coefficients of age at marriage, birth intervals and length of breast-feeding, and infant mortality. So Part I is basically a description of how those results can be substantiated or refuted or made inconsistent with this four-in-one venture of Migration, Fertility and so forth. Part II goes into statistics and details of a particular model to estimate the determinants of the children ever born.
