Although evidence from various sources indicates that fertility has fallen substantially in Bangladesh, actual fertility levels remain uncertain. This report provides an assessment of the 1991 population census and discusses fertility levels and trends implied by the census and other recent sources of information, including the previous census, the 1989 Bangladesh Fertility Survey, and the 1991 Contraceptive Prevalence Survey. The corresponding Asia-Pacific Population Research Abstract is available as a PDF file.
