BERQUO, Elza and CAVENAGHI, Suzana. Fertility in decline: a brief note on the decrease in the number of births in Brazil.Translated byAnthony Doyle. Novos estud. - CEBRAP [online]. 2006, vol.2Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0101-3300.
This article analyses data on fertility in Brazil from the 2004 National Household Sample Survey, which confirmed a downward trend in the number of births per woman. The expectation is that the next few years could see a decrement in the least privileged segments of the population, responsible for the most expressive drops in the average number of children per woman.
