Probabilistic Analysis of Fertility and Fecundity: An Application to Tombia in Rivers State of Nigeria



This paper is discusses fertility and fecundity from a probabilistic point of view, using Tombia as a case study. The fertility distribution in Tombia, fertility beyond a given time, infertility rate, measures of central tendencies and dispersion of the fertility distribution in Tombia, prediction of age at menopause in Tombia and projection of fertility beyond a given time are discussed. The emphasis is on the discussion and interpretation of the results obtained in the probabilistic models developed therein
