Abstract

The present study based on 102 Jat and 48 Jatav married women reveals that the Jat community has a distinctly higher fertility than Jatavs despite the fact that both communities have essential know how of prevalent family planning measures. Socio-economic status of the couple is inversely proportional to some extent, with the fertility of women. Greater stress on family planning measures are suggested for all communities in rural areas.
