Sterilisation has been increasing in the United States in recent decades.
Using the National Survey of Families and Households, this paper examines sterilisation among married couples using event history techniques, viewing husband and wife sterilisation as competing risks.
Wives are more likely to experience sterilisation and at shorter durations of marriage.
Number of children has a curvilinear effect on sterilisation, increasing and then decreasing its likelihood.
Wives who are older than their husbands are more likely to get sterilised themselves.
Black and Hispanic husbands are more likely to undergo sterilisation.
