Fertility Levels of the Population in Some Jordanian Cities, and Some of the Factors that Affect Them (in Arabic)

Auther : Kayed Abu Sabha

The purpose of this study is to determine the fertility levels for the population in some Jordanian cities, according to certain demographic and socio-economic characteristics, and to measure the effects of such characteristics on fertility levels.

Fertility levels were decided by computing the average number of children ever born, for each woman, in every age group, educational and occupational status and in the different levels of family income. Socio-economic indicators were measured by the characteristics of husband and mother, namely educational levels, occupational status, and income. In certain stages of this study, average number of children born in each year of marriage duration was considered as fertility level.

Stepwise regression was used to measure the effects of those socio-economic factors on fertility levels. Fertility level was considered as a dependent variable, and socioeconomic factors were considered as independent variables.

The study revealed that the highest fertility levels were associated with parents without educations or with low levels of education, and with those who work in agriculture and free occupations. It was apparent from the study, also, that younger women maintained higher fertility levels.

Negative relationships between fertility levels and the socio-economic characteristics were shown from this study. Educational levels for mother and husband were the most important factors affecting the levels of fertility, followed by the occupational status and levels of family income in Jordan.
