Chapter Summary

While it is true that Mongolia has not been the subject of very many studies in demography, the role of religion in shaping demographic behaviors has remained largely neglected in studies of this country. This chapter aims to partly fill this gap by examining fertility trends by religion in Mongolia over the last two decades. It first reviews the percentage distribution of Mongolia's population by religious groups using census and survey data. Doing so, the consistency of the religious figures across data sources is assessed. The chapter then turns to the presentation of the data and methods used to estimate fertility trends by religion in Mongolia. The 'results' section of the chapter presents and discusses fertility trends by religion in Mongolia. A concluding section summarizes the main contributions, as well as the limitations, of this study.

Keywords: fertility trends; Mongolia; religion; survey data
