Effects of couples'characteristics on contraceptive use in sub-Saharan Africa : The Ghanaian example.
Using data from the 1988 Ghana Demographic and Health Survey, this study examines couples'demographic and socioeconomic characteristics in the context of their attitudes towards family planning, and the impact of these factors on the use of contraceptives.
The characteristics of the husbands and their influence on wives'behaviour illustrate the role of intra-household relations between men and women and their effect on fertility-related behaviour in patriarchal African societies.
