Patterns and variations in fertility and family formation : a study of urban Africans in Lagos, Nigeria

Ohadike, Patrick Onyemaechi


This thesis records an investigation into certain demographic and sociological aspects of family formation in an urban Nigerian environment. The main theoretical framework is based upon the concepts of the vital revolution and related features of social change. Thus, the main concern is to demonstrate the impact of social and economic change upon attitudes and practices related to marriage, fertility and the family.
