  • Product Description

Research has focused on the knowledge and practice of family planning as a means of enhancing the reproductive behaviour of couples.It is argued that if women are well informed and practise family planning methods, the population growth rate will not be as high as 3.3%.This paper explores the determinants of ideal family size among currently married women in order to understand their reproductive norms. Using data from the 2008 Nigeria Demographic Health Survey (NDHS),sample consists of currently married women between the ages of 15-49(N=921).One-way ANOVA was used in the bi-variate analysis while Multivariate ANOVA was the multivariate method used. Distribution by knowledge,ever use of family planning and ideal number of children show that individual women consider a large family to be desirable.The bivariate and multivariate analyses show that educational attainment, number of living children, place of residence of currently married women are associated with significantly ideal number of children. For population growth rate to remain stable or on a decrease,efforts should be intensified on the family planning education so as to stem the tide of unnecessary increase in family size.
