  1. Contributions of the proximate determinnants to fertility change in Senegal.

    Article - En anglais

    The 1978 World Fertility Survey (WFS) and the 1986 Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) data are used to examine the relative contributions of three proximate determinants (nuptiality or marriage, contraception and post-partum infecundability) to fertility change in Senegal.

    The aim is to identify the important variables that is amenable for policy towards fertility reduction.

    Analysis shows that there are increases in the absolute measures of all three determinants.

    The magnitude of change is greatest in contraceptive use, moderate in marriage but least in duration of breast-feeding.
