Fertility Intentions and Behavior: Some Findings from Taiwan

Abstract

Couples' behavioral conformity to their stated reproductive intentions has been investigated using longitudinal data from Taiwan during 1974-77. Desire for additional children was the most important predictor of fertility. Couples who did not desire additional fertility appeared to make a greater effort to avoid pregnancy than others, but negative intentions seem to have been considerably disregarded, even though contraceptives were abundantly available. A majority of those who desired additional children in 1974 had changed their intentions to no additional children by 1978.
