The Effect Of Labour Participation On Fertility Behaviour Among Married Women In Nigeria

ABSTRACT

The prevalence of fertility has dramatically decreased worldwide, both in developed and developing countries. The study examined the effect of labour force participation on fertility behaviour among married women in Nigeria, using 2013 Nigeria Demographic and Health Survey women recode dataset. Characteristics of respondents were examined at univariate level with the use of frequency distribution table, bivariate level with the use of chi square and multinomial logistic regression was employed in the multivariate analysis. Bivariate analysis showed significantly association between the following: age of married women and fertility behaviour (X2 =8700.35, P =0.0000), places of residence and fertility behaviour (x2 =356.07, P=0.0000), level of education and fertility behaviour (x2 =728.95, P =0.0000), ethnicity and fertility behaviour (x2=1487.98, P =0.0000), religion and fertility behaviour (x2 =1383.80, P=0.0000), wealth index and fertility behaviour (x2 =593.78, P =0.0000), region and fertility behaviour (x2 =1689.59, P =0.0000), occupation and fertility behaviour (x2 =841.98, P =0.0000). The multivariate analysis model showed no significant relationship between labour force participation and fertility behaviour in the study. The study further revealed that there is significant relationship among the following variables: age of married women(OR= 0.37, P
