Cultural forces tending to sustain high fertility

Cultural forces tending to sustain high fertility

Population growth and reproduction in sub Saharan Africa: technical analyses of fertility and its consequences: 199-214

The central factor implicated in sub-Saharan African high fertility is a culture, moulded by religion, that encourages repeated childbearing and abhors sterility at any stage.
