Child marriage and fertility in Mozambique (Inglês)

In Mozambique, women who marry as children have on average 14-30 percent more births over their life time as compared to women marrying after the age of 18. Controlling for socio-economic and other characteristics, the average number of births per woman would be reduced by 0.40 births or about eight percent if child marriage could be eliminated. This in turn would have a substantial effect on demographic growth.
