This book analyse the low pace of declining fertility as the result of existence of son preference in Africa and Tanzania in particular. Parental preferences toward sons’ influences the number of the children they could have, hence affecting the family size.

Also, sex ratio at last birth was used to examine parental intention to stop childbearing after having at least one surviving son.
