... and in a particular case it is conceptually analogous to the total fertility by birth order but free from the influence of the parity distribution. Fertility of American women for the period 1935–1968 was studied by use of such lifetime probabilities. It appears that the trend of fertility of high birth orders has...

..., with somewhat larger declines in nonwhite high order births but smaller declines for second and third births. Generally birth rate declines between 1968 and 1971 seemed to continue the pattern of the early and mid 1960's. An exception appears to be the rate for second births with only a small decline for whites...

... data bring into focus new evidence. It was found that economic dependency of women is associated with the marriage differential between sexes. This relationship is especially evident in the regions where birth rates are of a low order. In the geographic areas where fertility is high, the percentage...

... that the recent rise is largely due to a “making up” of lower order births (first, second, and third) that had been postponed by a rapid increase in age at marriage. The period trend in higher order births and cohort trends of cumulative fertility from census data point to a continued reduction in completed Malay...

... on order of live birth is that they had a considerably high incidence of nonreports, as high as 16 per- cent, compared to only one percent among orders of pregnancy. In view of the fairly high degree of com- pleteness of registration of births, it was decided to utilize the parity data entered...

The risks associated with short conception intervals are confined to children who are also high birth order; they persist in the presence of controls for prior familial child mortality, breast-feeding, mother’s age, and socioeconomic status...

Multipartner fertility, on the other hand, is positively associated with both disadvantage and advantage: higher-order birth risks with a new partner are more prevalent among men with low as well as high socioeconomic status. An intervening factor among disadvantaged men...

... is studied by using period parity progression ratios. Levels of marriage and motherhood are found to have been high and essentially constant though the late 1980s, suggesting that the decline has been due almost entirely to declines in second and higher order-births. Families with three or more children play...
