Natural fertility and nuptiality patterns in India: Population transition in India, vol. Bhatia, and Ashish Bose.
This paper studies interstate differentials and associated factors in 3 major components in Indian fertility--natural fertility, nuptiality, and contraceptive use, using data on the and age patterns of fertility.
An analysis of data on age patterns of marital fertility available from different parts of the country prior to the introduction of the official program in the s and s reveals that the natural fertility levels in the country as a whole are lower than Western levels, and the age patterns of fertility are also different.
A considerable degree of interstate variation exists even in natural fertility. Natural fertility in India is well below biological limits and substantially below levels formerly prevailing in Western societies due to prolonged breast feeding, sexual abstinence, and prohibition on widow remarriage.
With modernization, these traditional checks on fertility are losing their impact, and natural fertility levels have risen differentially in different states. The stagnation of fertility levels during the past decade can be partly explained by increases in natural fertility counteracting the effects of contraception.
The family planning program, first introduced inhas led to the increased use of contraception throughout the country.
The acceptance and use of family planning has varied from state to state depending on a number of factors, including socioeconomic conditions and program implementation. Modernization and the family planning program may have opposite effects on fertility. Under these circumstances, fertility levels among women in different states in India must be analyzed separately, for older and younger age groups, using different indexes to measure overall fertility, marriage rates, marital fertility, and contraceptive use in relation to selected social and economic factors.This is a quick reference guide which gives one most of the needed information as to the state of the world from a human perspective.

A steroid called Prednisolone, marketed as Prednisone in . Fertility levels in India, as anywhere else, are governed by the prevailing social and economic conditions as well as cultural and religious traditions.
