RPHC4 Thematic Report: Fertility
The objectives of the present report are to estimate the current levels of fertility, trends over time, geographical and socio-economic variations in fertility in Rwanda. The three main findings of the analysis are:
- Fertility is decreasing substantially in Rwanda but not at a too low level that would compromise the replacement of the population at the next generation.
- Fertility varies substantially over provinces and women‟s characteristics.
- Not negligible proportions of Rwandan women have high-risky fertility behaviours (childbearing at adolescence and at late age) that compromise their own and children‟s health and well-being.
