A decomposition analysis of recent fertility decline in Fiji

The population of Fiji consisting of two major ethnic groups, the indigenous Melanesian population referred to as Fijians and the population who are of Indian origin referred to as Indians, has gone through significant demographic changes in the recent past. These were revealed in the two latest publications on Fiji (Bureau of Statistics, 1989; Gubhaju and Navunisaravi, 1989). The demographic change with which this note is mainly concerned is the decline in fertility of Fijians and Indians over the past two decades, 1966-1986.
