English Abstract

The paper analyzes the effects of fertility control and marriage structure on fertility level at different times in terms of the simplified Bongaarts model of the intermediate fertility variables. The outcome shows that the fertility control is the main factor from 1970 to 1990, which belongs to the earlier stage of decreasing of fertility. However, it is marriage structure in 1990s, which belongs to the later stage of decreasing of fertility. In 2000s, the fertility level increases a little, and the effect of marriage structure is equal to control fertility's. The theory of culture lag can explain the law of the effects of marriage structure and fertility control on fertility level.
