dc.description.abstract This article examines the relationship between women's education and fertility in KwaZulu Natal based on data from the 1993 Project for Statistics on Living Standards and Development survey (PSLSD) and the 1998 KwaZulu Natal Income Dynamics Study (KIDS). This study shows that fertility has declined between 1993 and 1998. Additionally, fertility declines as the level of education increases. However, women with lower levels of education have higher fertility than those with no schooling and women with tertiary education have higher fertility than those with secondary education. Moreover, education has a stronger effect on fertility in 1998. en_US
