Abstract:
Purpose: To determine factors which affect fertility rates and child bearing in households, in order to help decision makers plan and improve population policies in developing countries, where population growth is a major problem. Design: 404 families with 4 children or more were selected as a case group, and 397 families with 3 children or less were selected as a control group. Both selections were made by multiple stage random sampling among households in Kogiloyeh and Boirahmad provinces -Iran. Data was collected in a questionnaire by interviewing parents and was analyzed using SPSS software. Results: Results indicated that effective factors were parents' age, gender ratio of children, birth interval, children mortality rate, contraception methods used by parents, parents' education level, economic status of households, occupations of children under 15 years old, education and training costs of children, parents' desirable number of children, parents' attitude towards family planning, parents' participation in housework and polygamy. Conclusion: Based on these results population control policy in developing countries needs socioeconomic and cultural development.
