Analytical models for number of births--a review

Analytical models for number of births--a review

Janasamkhya 4(2): 147-160

This review describes analytical probability models for number of births in human populations. First the biological variables are defined: effective reproductive period; fecundability; fetal loss; non-susceptible period. The models are classified into 2 groups, depending on whether they are designed to conform to a Markov renewal process or not. Equations in each group are presented with increasing complexity, involving heterogeneity and taking into account dependence of factors on each other, such as fecundability on parity. Recently, statisticians have introduced into their models the use of contraceptive techniques and the possibility of switching between methods.
