"Period parity-progression ratios for Russia, 1988-1996 and 1978-1979, are computed with the age-parity underlying model, [as well as] for 1979-1989--with a cruder indirect technique. Also obtained are, with a newly derived procedure, parity-progression ratios for 77 out of 80 [of] Russia's territorial units referring to 1993-1994. The fertility rise of the 1980s and its steep decline in the 1990s are interpreted in terms of parity-progression evolution, and the difference between the age-parity total fertility rate and the conventional one is examined. At present, Russia's parity-progression schedule is seen as clearly distinct from those of Western nations, despite fairly similar overall fertility levels, and no evidence of convergence toward the West is found. No unusual regional diversity in the parity-progression pattern is detected, with exception for certain ethnic autonomous republics. Some formal properties of the parity-progression table are also studied."

This analysis of fertility in Libya is based on a survey of 1,252 couples in north-eastern Libya carried out by the author. The primary focus was to analyze the impact of child loss on subsequent fertility in a relatively affluent population with low contraceptive prevalence. The results also indicate that, even in the absence of contraception, increases in the level of education, age at marriage, and opportunities for female employment outside of the home tend to reduce fertility.

This article examines the relationship between demographic trends and the public discourse in the Canadian province of Quebec. "Using a collection of articles selected from French-language periodicals published between 1870 and 1920, the article analyzes the reactions of certain public commentators to the prospect of fertility decline in this traditionally prolific province. They identify a shift in the public discussion of fertility in Quebec during World War I. Pride in and celebration of Quebec's large families was superseded in the dominant nationalist discourse by anxiety about diminished rates of reproduction and natalist exhortations to women who might be tempted to restrict their fertility."

"This paper analyzes the levels and trends of fertility over the past five decades for Lebanon, through national and sub-national estimates. The article uses the 1996 Population and Housing Survey, the largest demographic dataset for Lebanon since the 1932 census. In 1996, total fertility rates at the governorate level stood as high as 4.0 in North Lebanon and as low as 2.0 in Beirut, unlike in other Arab countries. Cohort fertility rates ranged from 3.74 in Beirut to 5.86 in Bekaa for women born in 1947-51. The disparities in fertility are even more striking at the district level and have widened over time. In the aggregate, fertility decline does not appear to have been significantly interrupted by the hostilities from 1975-1991."

"This article presents new estimates of fertility trends in Nepal for the period 1961-95. The estimates are derived from three national surveys--the 1976 Nepal Fertility Survey (NFS), the 1991 Nepal Fertility, Family Planning and Health Survey (NFFPHS), and the 1996 Nepal Family Health Survey (NFHS). Each survey yields a trend for the fifteen years before the survey, and the trends estimated from the 1991 NFFPHS and the 1996 NFHS overlap during some of these years. Because the data are not perfect, the trends do not coincide. Analysis of the discrepancies allows an improved assessment of the true trend in fertility. The trend so obtained suggests that current fertility is somewhat higher than commonly thought, and that fertility has been declining somewhat more slowly than commonly thought. Our best estimates indicate that, between 1961 and 1995, the TFR declined from 6.10 to 4.95, with the rate of decline accelerating in recent years."

"This study explores the course and age-parity structure of fertility decline in Kenya. The study utilizes pooled data from the 1988 and 1993 Kenya Demographic and Health Surveys. By using parity progression ratios and conditional age-parity specific birth probabilities, it provides a clear picture of the dynamics of the fertility decline that is under way in Kenya. It can be argued that the observed fertility decline is not only a timing effect but is also due to a true decline in the number of children various age cohorts of Kenyan women have been having. In the early and middle ages of reproduction, we see important tendencies toward the delay of the first birth and the lowering of middle and higher order births. Together, these changes are producing dramatic declines in period fertility."

"Fertility histories from a large survey, the National Family Health Survey, Uttar Pradesh, have been utilised to compute period parity progression ratios (PPPRs) following the methodology proposed by Feeney and Yu (1987). The PPPRs have been calculated for the quinquennia between the years 1972 and 1991 and for the first four parities. The findings show that a decline in the PPPRs is seen only after the third and higher order births. There are notable differences in the levels and trends in the PPPRs by education. The decline is sharper for women with the higher level of education. Further, while nearly half of the population in the higher education class had begun to stop childbearing at two or three births even by 1972-76, the primary/middle school educated population reached this level only in 1987-91 and the illiterate population not even by then."

"The patterns of family formation and fertility behaviour of Turkish and Moroccan women in Belgium are changing rapidly. The census data (1991) indicate a fertility decline. The reasons are changes in the nuptiality patterns, contraceptive behaviour and migratory flows. The changes are not identical in both communities. Young cohorts postpone their marriage, but this is most prominent among Moroccan women. On the other hand, young Turkish women have a clear preference for smaller families. The changes also differentiate according to migrant 'generation' and level of education. The changes are not restricted to Belgium but are also observed in the countries of origin."

This study presents a fixed formula that can be used by women to find the period in their menstrual cycle in which they are likely to become pregnant. "This article reports the results of an analysis of the application of a fixed formula to define the fertile window. A large existing data set from a World Health Organization study of the Ovulation Method was used to estimate the theoretical probability of pregnancy using this formula. Information about the variable probability of pregnancy on different cycle days relative to ovulation also was considered in the analysis. Results suggest that a fixed formula in which days 8-19 of the menstrual cycle are considered to be the fertile window would provide the appropriate basis of a simple, effective, family planning method."

"This paper develops an analytical framework for measuring unmet need for couples. The approach: (1) takes a fresh look at the classification of pregnant and amenorrheic women, and (2) incorporates the contraceptive use and fertility preferences of husband and wife in estimating the level of unmet need in six sub-Saharan African countries. Our findings shows that taking these factors into account results in a 50 to 66 percent reduction in the level of unmet need in these countries. The importance of husbands' variables in determining the level of unmet need is clearly evident when examined among fecund couples in which the wife is neither pregnant nor amenorrheic. The implications of these findings for family planning programs and research are discussed."

"Fertility has declined substantially in developing countries in the period since 1960, primarily as the result of increases in contraceptive prevalence.... One unresolved issue is the causal contribution of changes in fertility desires. The sources of increase in contraceptive prevalence are analyzed in 22 countries in Latin America, Asia, and Africa in the period from the 1970s to the 1990s, using World Fertility Survey and Demographic and Health Survey data.... Two fertility-preference variables are examined, the desire for another birth and the difference between actual and ideal family size. The rates component dominates in all 22 countries, ranging between 75 percent and 90 percent in most of the countries. In only two countries does the composition component exceed 25 percent. The results refute demand-side explanations that ignore or dismiss the potential for substantial increase in prevalence through the satisfaction of existing demand."

"By collecting empirical data from rural Bangladesh, this paper provides additional evidence that credit-based participatory development programs promoted by non-government organisation [NGO] lead to higher contraceptive use and smaller family size norms than those resulting from normal development and categorical family planning programs. These changes may occur even when NGOs do not provide family planning services. The findings indicate that credit-program membership may exert its effect on family size desires through its impact on women's empowerment. The logistic regression analysis suggests that predictors of current contraceptive use are BRAC [Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee] membership, joint decision by husband and wife, desired family size, mobility and number of living children."

This paper investigates the effects of inter-spousal communication on the use of modern contraception in Bangladesh using data from the 1993-1994 Demographic and Health Survey. The results indicate that the frequency of such communication was a strong predictor of the use of modern reversible methods of contraception. The need for increased involvement of men in family planning programs is stressed.

This study attempts to analyze the impact of education, caste, and religion on contraceptive prevalence in selected villages in Uttar Pradesh, India. The data are from the Small Family Norms through Innovative Methods project, which included 3,913 couples living in nine villages. The results indicate that contraceptive prevalence is higher in those villages with caste Hindus as the predominate population than in villages mainly inhabited by Muslims or low-caste Hindus. The association of female literacy and certain occupations with higher rates of contraceptive prevalence is also noted.

"To make an informed decision when choosing a contraceptive, women and couples need to know how effective different methods are when used perfectly, where perfect use is defined as following the directions for use. In this article, we show that unbiased estimates of pregnancy rates during perfect use can be guaranteed only if information on consistency and correctness of use is available for each menstrual cycle. The estimated probability of pregnancy during a year of perfect use among the subset of women who always used a method perfectly will be biased upward."

"This study illustrates the use of panel data and a fixed-effects estimator to investigate the impact of family planning program inputs on contraceptive utilization in Morocco during the 1992-1995 period. By controlling the potential bias resulting from common unobserved determinants of program resource allocation decisions and program outcomes, the methodology helps overcome an important constraint to the use of non-experimental study designs in undertaking meaningful impact assessments. Data from a panel of women interviewed in both the 1992 and 1995 Morocco Demographic and Health Surveys were used in the study, along with `program' data from Service Availability Modules undertaken in conjunction with each survey round. The results indicate that changes in the family planning supply environment, in particular increased presence of nurses trained in family planning and the level of infrastructure at public clinics, played a significant role in the increased use of modern contraceptives during the study period."

The author attempts to develop a methodology for measuring the people's response to the national family welfare program in India, and for using the results to measure program effectiveness at the local level. Data primarily concern the district of Chitradurga in Karnataka, and were collected in a survey carried out in 1994-1995. The author demonstrates that this methodology can be used to identify the better- and worse-performing public heath centers in the region.

"Indian Family Planning programs in the past have introduced a number of approaches such as providing monetary benefits, and motivational programs to improve contraceptive use among rural illiterate women. Under the Ammanpettai family welfare program, the Melatur PHC administered three program types involving a combination of monetary and motivational approaches to improve contraceptive use in the three treatment areas. The program was introduced during January 1989 and was simultaneously discontinued after a period of two years. The present evaluation was conducted in 1994. Data from a random sample of 933 non-sterilized women at the time of social survey using a questionnaire approach is used in this study.... The results...suggest that motivational programs are more likely to improve long term use of temporary family planning methods than cash incentive programs. One implication of our finding is that motivational programs should provide peer based family planning education and training in community work to contact persons who make door to door visits to promote family planning programs."

Population Council Policy Research Division Working Paper, No. 132, 1999. 33 pp. Population Council, Policy Research Division: New York, New York. In Eng.
"Using data from a nationally representative survey of adolescents, this paper investigates the prevalence and social correlates of circumcision among girls aged 10-19, the circumstances surrounding the procedure, and the attitudes of adolescents towards it.... Circumcision may have begun to decline prior to the time when the current cohort of girls were at risk; however, the data hint at a temporal association between the decline and the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo, a time when the campaign against circumcision gained momentum.... A multivariate analysis indicates that girls who have been or are currently in school, who live in urban governorates, and who are older are more likely to believe that circumcision is not obligatory. When the analysis includes boys as well as uncircumcised girls, a large gender gap emerges, with boys considerably more supportive of the practice than are their female counterparts."

Data for a sample of 425 currently married women aged 30-49 living in the city of Simla, India, in 1996-1997 are used to analyze the impact of sex preference for children on fertility intentions and contraceptive acceptance. The results indicate that the preference for male children has a substantial impact on desired fertility and on family planning behavior. The authors conclude that the general desire of women to have two surviving sons will make further declines in fertility difficult to achieve.

In Spa. with sum. in Eng; Por.
The attitudes and behavior of traditional midwives in a rural area of Mexico with regard to abortion are analyzed using qualitative methods involving interviews, focus groups, and observation. The results indicate that, although there is a profound rejection of all abortions whether induced or spontaneous, there is a wide use and general acceptance of methods to provoke menstruation when it is delayed. The importance of taking local attitudes and beliefs into consideration in developing appropriate health services is stressed.
