The aim of the study was to comparatively measure and compare fertility preference among females in Northwest and Southwest Nigeria. And to determine the socio-demographic and cultural factors that influence these preferences and highlight the possible implications of the observed preference which could be of use in the successful implementation of the national population policy goal of 4 children per woman (by the year 2000).
