Abstract
The assumption that the experiences of Western societies are the inevitable path for development in African societies has for long guided demographic studies of African fertility and reproductive behaviour. Valid explanations of African fertility remain elusive partly because African demography has not seriously contested this assumption. This paper examines the problems in the explanations of fertility and reproductive behaviour in Africa from a demographic perspective.
