Abstract

This study employs recent data from the 1988 Ghana Demographic and Health Survey to assess earlier speculation of fertility change in Ghana. The findings are cautiously optimistic. Although there is little evidence to support any hypothesis of a fertility turnaround in Ghana, there is some indication that continued increases in the proportion of women with some secondary education may yet induce a fertility transition in Ghana.
