This paper investigates the effect of female education and modernity on general fertility. Evidence from available data indicates that education of females has a significant effect on fertility after controlling for the effcct of modernity and some other factors. On the other hand, modernity is not found to have an independent effcct on the number of live births after controlling for education, infant mortality, and age at marriage. A significant relationship is seen between infant mortality and fertility. Thus, policies aimed at increasing the female education and reducing the infant mortality hold the key to reducing the fertility.
