A study on practice of family planning in a village of Bangladesh: an anthropological approach

The paper defines the concept of family planning in a broad perspective to encompass the different methods of birth control devices to limit the number of children, to protect the health of the baby and mother, to avoid poverty and to give a higher standard of living to the populace. Data are derived from the village of Kamnagar, a multi-caste and multi-religious interior village, near Rajshahi city.
