... been prepared from both the Family Survey and the Socio-Economic Survey. THE FERTILITY DECLINE BETWEEN 1957 AND 1966 The large decline in the crude birth rate between 1957 and 1966 is reflected in an equally large drop in the total fer- tility rate. In fact, age-specific fertility rates have declined...

Thus, when combining pill-IUD users with women protected by sterilization to derive an unwanted fer- tility rate for women using PAC, and when calculating the rate when com- bining those using and those not using PAC, it was necessary to adjust for those differences.
