Wanted and unwanted fertility in selected states of India by Sumati Kulkarni( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study relied on new measures of wanted and unwanted fertility based on actual and wanted parity progression ratios (PPRs). The study was conducted among selected states in India with varying levels of fertility and socioeconomic development. Data were obtained from the 1992-93 National Family Health Survey of India, among ever married women aged 13-49 years for Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Maharashtra, and Kerala. Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, and Rajasthan had low socioeconomic development and were the most populous states. These states included about 75% of women who were illiterate and a little over 25% who were exposed to radio. Fertility ranged from 3.6-4.8 births/woman. Wanted PPRs are the adjusted proportions of women who want more children. The unwanted fertility rate (UFR) is the difference between the total marital fertility rate and the wanted total marital fertility rate (WTMFR). The UFR was lowest in Kerala (0.37 unwanted births) and highest in Uttar Pradesh (1.46). The remaining states had UFRs of about 1 child/woman. The 4 largest states had a WTMFR ranging from 2.95-3.81. Multivariate analysis revealed that education, religion, exposure to mass media family planning messages, experience of child loss, and son preference were the main determinants of contraceptive use among women wanting no more children. Regardless of socioeconomic status, Muslim women were less likely to desire no more children or use contraception
Low fertility lite in Canada : the Nordic model in Quebec and the U.S. model in Alberta by Roderic P Beaujot( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the factors that are responsible for low fertility, the risks experienced by young people are particularly relevant. In that context, it is noteworthy that fertility is rising most in Alberta and Quebec, that is in provinces where young families have had the security of either good job opportunities or supportive social policy. The fertility trend in Canada has seen a low point of 1.51 in 2002, rising to a total fertility rate of 1.59 in 2006. The trends and differences are placed in the context of family and work questions, including the division of paid and unpaid work by gender. Actual and intended fertility vary especially by marital status and family structure, with lower fertility in situations of less stability. Given the concurrent models of family and work, fertility varies less by women's work status. We summarize the changing policy context, proposing that social policy has become more supportive of families with young children, especially in Quebec but also in the rest of Canada. The further policy support for families needs to pay attention to the heterogeneity in the population, and thus to include subsidizing the direct costs of children, along with parental leave and child care. Family formation will also be enhanced through approaches that reduce the risks experienced by young people, and thus the importance of employment security, job satisfaction and affordable housing
