Fertility differentials among white collar workers

Fertility differentials among white collar workers

Health & Population Perspectives & Issues 13(3-4): 162-170

Utilising data collected from a sample of 1210 whit collar workers working in the Uttar Pradesh State Government Secretariat, Lucknow City, this paper attempts to investigate fertility differentials among white collar workers. The findings revealed that age at marriage of wife, her education, and her participation in white collar occupations exercise strong negative influence on fertility of the workers. Per capita income and family status have also been observed to exercise negative influence on fertility. Fertility differentials by origin of the couples, by religion and caste status have also been considered, which suggest the strength of cultural factors in influencing fertility even among educated and decently employed sections of the Indian population.
