Determination of Total Fertility Rate of Bangladesh using Bonga arts Model


Fitrat Hossain and Rezaul Karim

Estimation of the total fertility rate (TFR) of Bangladesh for the year 2011 is taken into account in the present study. Determination of total fertility rate is very important for an overpopulated developing country like Bangladesh, as it indicates the average number of children, a woman would bear over her lifetime. We have used Bongaarts model to determine TFR by estimating the four indices associated with this model. For Bangladesh, it has been observed that the marriage and lactational infecundability have the vital role to reduce fertility, which are about 52.9% and 43.5%, respectively, followed by contraception use (41.1%). It has also been noticed that the TFR of Bangladesh for 2011 is very closer to 2.1, which is the replacement level of fertility.
