Published: 01 August 1989
... on the delta method for approximating change in a function of several variables. Drawing on an analogy to survival in a life table, the relational logit model is applied to parity progression. This method allows several parity distributions to be synthesized and to have differences summarized with two...

... 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...

Results show that the cohorts increased and decreased their age at first birth, birth intervals...

... The hypothetical example restriets the parity distribution of couples to only the first and second parities. This simplification again lends an unacceptable bias to the results. First of all, it ignores the existence of couples who have no children. As is the case for infecund couples, this is a group for whom sex...

... ( Montez et al. 2020 ). Second, fertility is falling in the United States, and the probability of further childbearing depends more than ever on parity (the number of children one already has). Therefore, the population's parity distribution is a key determinant of present and future population fertility...

This distribution is derived under three sets of assumptions on the rate of occurrence of births of any specified order in the past and the parity progression ratio (PPR: the probability that a woman who has given birth to her ith child will ever proceed to the [i+1] th child in her reproductive life). Explicit...
