Abstract

Our present concern is with fertility determinants on Pakistan. Based on the household data co11cted in connection with PIDE/ILO project "Studies in Population, Labour Ircrce and Migration in Pakistan" an attempt is made to ascertain the influence of various socio-economic variables on household fertility decision making. The analysis which follows is preliminary in nature and can be characterised as taking a general socio-economic approach.

Various fertility measures available from the survey are described in this paper followed by a discussion on the choice and specification of independent variables in the next section. Regression results are presented in the third section.
