Channon MD, Harper S (2019) Educational differentials in the realisation of fertility intentions: Is sub-Saharan Africa different? PLoS ONE 14(7): e0219736. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0219736
The gap between fertility outcomes and fertility ideals is notably higher in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) than elsewhere, relating to both under- and overachievement of fertility ideals. We consider the extent to which the relationship between fertility ideals and fertility outcomes is related to educational achievement. Further, we consider if these educational differentials are the same or different in SSA, and thereby consider the extent to which increasing levels of education in SSA may decrease fertility.
