Ethnicity and Fertility in Singapore
Eddie C. Y.Kuo & Chiew Seen-Kong
It has long been established that fertility patterns are influenced by the cultural and, to a lesser extent, the ethnic backgrounds of parents. In this study, based on a sample of nearly 2,000 married couples in Singapore, the authors present their findings as to how important parents' ethnic backgrounds are relevant to their fertility rates and their differing responses to Singapore's successful family planning programme. The work also reviews the existing literature on the subject and the extent to which there are differences in the fertility rates of different components of the three main ethnic groups in Singapore, Chinese, Indian and Malay. 182 pages with a bibliography and tables and figures.
