Fertility of Women in Polygynous Unions in Rural Eastern Nigeria
Ukaegbu, Alfred O.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, 39, 2, 397-403, May 77
This paper examines fertility patterns of women in two different types of marital unions (monogamous and polygynous) in 16 sample villages of eastern Nigeria. Results show polygyny tends to reduce fertility through the intermediary of a comparatively wider age differential between the polygynists and their wives. (Author)
