Khan, Hafiz T. A., Islam, S. M. Shafiqul, Khan, H. M. R. and Bari, R. D. (1993) Fertility differentials in rural Bangladesh. The Dhaka University Journal of Science, 41 (1) . pp. 83-89. ISSN 1022-2502 [Article]


Data from two sources in rural Bangladesh have been used in this study to examine the differentials in fertility by selected socio-economic and demographic factors. Results [indicate] that age at first marriage, education of spouses and availability of electricity in the household...have [an] inverse relationship with fertility. Higher fertility is observed for Muslim women than for non-Muslims. It has been found that fertility is the lowest to those women whose husbands are service holders and the highest for agriculture.
