The effect of migration on fertility in a less developed nation is studied in this analysis by a comparison of three groups of women: 1) rural sedentary; 2) rural to rural migrants; and 3) rural to urban migrants. Age specific fertility rates and child-woman ratios reveal a declining gradient of fertility with social distance from the rural home community.
