Education, fertility and contraception among Hindus and Roman Catholics in Goa

  • T. K. Roy (a1), G. Rama Rao (a1) and Rajiva Prasad (a1)

Summary

Differences in age at marriage, fertility and contraceptive use are related to religious background, individual educational level and community level education. In general, the effects of community education are weak compared to individual level of education, but differences exist between Hindus and Roman Catholics.
