This paper examines the determinants of Total Fertility Rate in Ecuador on the basis of ENDEMAIN 2004. We find empirical evidence suggests that women who have information about childbirth and pregnancy, contraceptive use, have higher levels of education and work, are more likely to have fewer children. It is evident from the analysis that in Ecuador, the total fertility rate also depends positively on infant mortality.
