THE ESTIMATION OF FERTILITY FROM INCOMPLETE BIRTH REGISTRATION DATA FOR INDIAN TOWNS AND CITIES

admin
The use of vital statistics
International Institute for Vital Registration and Statistics Technical Papers As the author of this paper notes, "the estimation of fertility measures from incomplete birth registration data has been a comparatively neglected area by the demographers". However, fertility measures for cities and towns and other civil subdivisions are frequently needed for the planning and evaluation of family planning and other public health programs. The method of estimation presented in this paper appears to give reasonable estimates for Indian towns and cities which are consistent with and supplement the estimates for the nation and states provided by the Sample Registration System. Until such time as birth and death registration are complete in India, this method may well serve the continuing needs for frequent estimates of fertility for cities and towns. This paper was previously published in Demography India, Vol. 19, No. 2(1990), pp. 279-287 and is presented in this series by the kind permission of the publisher.
