the total fertility rate both at the national and regional level, pointing
out the regional disparities in the distribution of this indicator. At the

on the changes in the fertility rate by birth rank, as well as on the
failure of acquiring the desired number of children. The second part
of the study centres upon a survey applied to urban families with 3

fact that an increased fertility (more than 3rd rank) is triggered by the
parents’ above the average material condition and superior education.
