The impact on fertility of contraceptive failure in China in the 1980s.
Contraceptive failure was an important determinant of fertility in China in the 1980s.
Based on the data from the China Two-per-Thousand Fertility Survey, this study shows that about 7% of the general fertility rate of currently married women aged 15-49 for a 12-month period is attributed to contraceptive failure, mainly due to the high failure rate associated with IUD use.
A number of demographic characteristics are associated with contraceptive use, and with contraceptive failure and its outcome.
Relevant socioeconomic differentials are also identified.
