Religion, Reproduction and Development in Contemporary India

Title:Religion, Reproduction and Development in Contemporary India
Author:Iyer Sriya
Publication:Development / Palgrave Macmillan
Enumeration:Vol. 46, No.4, pp. 50-56, 2003
Abstract:The author explains inter-group differences in demographic and development outcomes in India. She evaluates the role of religion in demography and development with reference to Hinduism and Islam, religious institutions and the manner in which textual theology is interpreted at the local level. She shows the influence of socio-economic characteristics on fertility, from a study among Hindu and Muslim women in Karnataka, India. On the basis of this theoretical and empirical evidence, she argues that economic circumstance, rather than religion, explains fertility differences between religious groups in India
