Stability of marital unions and fertility in Nigeria

, : Stability of marital unions and fertility in Nigeria. Journal of Biosocial Science 30(1): 33-41

Using nationally representative data from 1990, it is shown that marital unions are relatively stable in Nigeria. Remarriage rates are high so little time is lost between unions. Consequently, the fertility of women who have experienced marital disruption is only slightly lower than for those in stable unions.
