A survey was conducted in 42 developing countries and in 20 developed countries to determine fertility practices and trends. Both individual and household questionnaires were used by interviewers to gather data. Findings concerning marriage patterns, contraception, reproductive motivation, childspacing, breastfeeding, maternal and child health, and infant and child mortality are discussed. Also examined are policy implications regarding fertility decline and development, family planning, marriage postponement, promotion of breastfeeding, health services, and the use of World Fertility Survey data by policy-makers. Main findings from the developing country surveys include the following: fertility is highest in the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa, with an average of seven children per woman; there are substantial fertility declines in all regions except sub-Saharan Africa; no single aspect of development that is crucial for bringing about fertility decline has been identified; contraceptive use increases with education; and the presence of convenient family planning services generally leads to greater contraceptive use.

A Regional Workshop on techniques of Analysis of World Fertility Survey (WFS) Data was held in November-December 1978 with the objective of providing the national staff, directly responsible for future analysis of their WFS and related data, intensive training in the statistical techniques required for the fulfillment of such advanced research work. In the effort to achieve the objective, the Workshop involved a series of lectures on the theoretical and methodological aspects of the statistical techniques related to the evaluation of data, the estimation of fertility and multivariate analysis and laboratory exercises in the application of those techniques to selected case studies. It was anticipated that following the completion of the Workshop each participant would train other demographers in their own countries who would also be involved in indepth analyses of their WFS country data. The Workshop was financially supported by a grant from the United Nations Fund for Population Activities to the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific. Along with information concerning the organization and evaluation of the workshop, this report includes Workshop background papers which deal with the following: screening procedures for detecting errors in maternity history data; assessment of the validity of fertility trend estimates from maternity histories; the relational Gompertz model of fertility by age of woman; and application of the relational Gompertz model of fertility; a technical note on the own-children method of fertility estimation and its application ot the 1974 Fiji Fertility Survey; some problems in the measurement and analysis of fertility preferences from WFS 1st country reports; an overview of the demographic techniques discussed at the Regional Workshop; an overview of multivariate techniques in the analysis of survey data; and regression analysis
