Transition and Challenge

Oxford University Press

This chapter investigates changes in induced abortion and their relationship with the implementation of the family planning policies, the decline in fertility, and the rise of sex ratios at birth. It identifies a number of factors that have markedly influenced patterns of abortion. It shows that while the contribution of abortion to fertility decline is relatively small, it has a considerable impact on sex ratio at birth in many regions.

Keywords:   family planning, fertility decline, sex ratio, general abortion rate, total abortion rate
