Demand for Children in Rural Setting

Category : Cross-Sectional Surveys   06 June, 2006

National Institute of Population Studies (NIPS) initiated the study "The Demand for Children in Rural Setting of Pakistan" in April 2005. The aim of this study was to explore the reasons influencing the demand for children in the rural setting, and the associations between vulnerabilities and capabilities in decision-making about family size. This study was important, as it provided some in-depth answers for the causes of high fertility in rural areas: such as lack of education, religious pressure, exchange marriages, social security in old age etc. This study will be useful for understanding the dynamics of fertility behaviour in Pakistan, and designing strategies for an effective population policy.
