Rural-Urban Fertility Differentials: 1975
This paper is concerned with identifying differentials in levels and patterns of urban and rural fertility in Pakistan, based on Pakistan Fertility Survey data. Findings show that there are marginal differences in the over-all levels of fertility in the two areas. However, younger urban women are reproducing at a higher rate than rural counterparts, whereas older urban women use relatively more contraception and have lower fertility than older rural women.
