The Fertility Transition in Latin America

By JosÉ Miguel GuzmÁn; Susheela Singh et al. | Go to book overview
Prevalence (NSCP) was held in 1981, with a sample of 6,437 women of fertile age. In 1984, the National Nutrition and Health Survey (NNHS) was carried out, this was not precisely a demographic survey, but had a section which collected information on children ever born and births during the preceding year, from a sample of 30,000 women of fertile age. Finally, in 1986, the Demographic and Family Health Survey (NDFHS) was held, compiling pregnancy histories from a sample of 4,999 women aged 15 to 49 years (Table 23.1).The above-mentioned sources have made it possible to calculate indirect estimates of fertility both at the national level and for administrative divisions. All of them, in spite of their limitations and the fact that they are not at all congruent, have made it possible to establish a reasonably clear picture of the evolution and the structure of fertility from 1940 onward.
