Fertility levels and trends in the face of the AIDS epidemic in Uganda
The paper uses data on ever-married women interviewed in 1992 and 1995 surveys in six districts of Uganda. Total fertility rates declined during the inter-survey period from 7.3 to 6.0. Women in households that experienced AIDS-related deaths had lower fertility levels than women in non-AIDS-affected households in both 1992 and 1995. This pattern was yes of women at older ages, in polygamous unions, the widowed and separated, and among the highly educated and the uneducated.
