THE EFFECTS OF SOME SOCIO-ECONOMIC FACTORS ON THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN IN THE SAUDI FAMILY IN RIYADH CITY

Auther : Mohammed K. AL-Oteiby

This paper is a cross-sectional study of fertility in Riyadh the capital city of Saudi Arabia.

The main objective of this study is to measure the effects of some social factors on fertility.

The study found that there are three factors which have positive effects on number of children in the family. These factors are: the date of migration to the city, the number of wives the head of family has, and the age of the oldest child.

Some other factors however, do not seem to have an impact on the number of children in the family.

These factors are: income, occupation, and the age of the head of family.

The only two factors which affect fertility negatively are birth place and level of education of the head of family. It was found that those who were born in the city have fewer children than those born in a town or a rural areas. As far education is concerned, it has that fertility varies inversely with the level of education.
