  Using the data derived from the three national surveys, this article attempts to find the effect of sex preference on the use of contraception. The findings show that in the absence of sex preference, there would have been an increase in the contraceptive prevalence rate indicating that sex preference is still prevalent in Bangladesh. But this effect has been weakened with increase in contraceptive prevalence rate. Analysis of variance suggests that son preference is an important determinant of contraceptive use.

  This study used the 1989 Bangladesh Fertility Survey (BFS) the 1993-94 and 1996-97 Bangladesh Demographic and Health Surveys (BDHS) to investigate the determinants of fertility. It used cumulative approach to measure the fertility. Multiple regression analysis were used to identify the determinants of fertility during demographic transition. Strong and high significant effects of female education, employment, place of residence, religion, mass-media, contraceptive use, child mortality and mobility status on fertility have been found. The effect of contraceptive use and child mortality on fertility were positive and all other variables showed negative effect.

  This study, based on 1993-94 Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey (BDHS), attempts to identify important factors influencing infant and child mortality. Application of Cox`s proportional hazard model suggest that socio-economic status of the parents are associated with child survival. The factors that have received the most attention are maternal education, sanitation and access to safe drinking water. For instance, risk of infant mortality is 13% lower among the women having primary education and 25% lower among the women having secondary or higher education than those having no education. It was observed that 35 and 29% lower among the households having safe drinking water and good sanitary facilities, respectively than those who do not have such facilities. Similarly, risk of child mortality decreases with increased female education and wider access to safe drinking water and good sanitary facilities. So attention should be given to female education and expansion of public health system in order to reduce the risk of infant and child mortality.

  Using the data derived from the 1996-97 Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey, this investigation attempts to examine the relationship between the child mortality and fertility. Child mortality is one of the postpartum variables contributing to high fertility. The results of multiple classification analysis suggested that the couples who had the experience of child death had higher mean number of live births.
