  • TITLE: Determinants of Sterilization Birth Control Method in Bangladesh

    AUTHORS: Mohammad Nazmul Hoq, Mohammad Emdad Hossain, Israth Sultana

    KEYWORDS: Sterilization, Socioeconomic Factors, Demographic Factors, Gender Preference, Bangladesh

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Social Sciences, Vol.7 No.9, September 2, 2019

    ABSTRACT: Sterilization is one of the best ways to deal with population growth in a country. As the fertility rate in Bangladesh is almost in the steady condition in the last decades, this article explores the continuing low preference of sterilization method rather than other birth control methods. For this purpose, the present study utilized 2014 Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey data set (BDHS, 2014)1. The Cross-tabulation and Logistic Regression analyses were employed to identify the different demographic and socioeconomic factors which affect the decision of using a permanent contraceptive method. The study found that working status and social position of the respondents had a positive relation with choice of sterilization, but interestingly the study identified that education of couples had an unexpected negative correlation with the decision of sterilization. Moreover, the study found that the decision of sterilization strongly depends on the number of sons of the respondents.
