Fertility, one of the three components of population dynamics (the others being mortality and migration), holds a very important place in any population study.

A positive force in population dynamics, fertility is responsible for biological replacement and continuation of human society. Breastfeeding is known to reduce fertility and increase child survival. It affects fertility by prolonging the interval If fertility and mortality rates are constant over time, that have been termed natural fertility.

Wood [8] reports that 70 such populations have been identified; their. Abstract. Fertility refers to the reproductive experience of a population.

The reproductive experience of a population subsumes all factors related to sexual behavior, pregnancy, and birth outcome. Moreover, the number of births as well as the characteristics of those births (e.g., birth weight), along with factors describing the mothers and fathers of the children (e.g., age and level of.

ADVERTISEMENTS: Difference between Determinants of Mortality and Determinants of Fertility. Determinants of Mortality: Mortality data are normally expressed in terms of the number of deaths per thousand individuals as specified by age, sex and social groups.

It provides a measure of health risks, improvements in the quality of health care, and the comparative overall health [ ]. Natural fertility is the fertility that exists without birth control. The control is the number of children birthed to the parents and is modified as the number of children reaches the maximum.

There is evidence that little birth control is used in non-European countries. Natural fertility tends to decrease as a. Fertility is the natural capability to produce offspring.

As a measure, fertility rate is the number of offspring born per mating pair, individual or population.

Demographic theory is less well-suited to describe fertility responses to large-scale mortality events such as war and natural disasters (Hill ). To the extent that a one-time event does not change expectations about future child survival, a fertility response to a temporary mortality increase cannot be attributed a hoarding motive.
