RESEARCH BACKGROUND:

The study of human fertility has attained global importance due to the mounting pressure of population size and its rapid growth. At the same time regulation of fertility seems to be the major solution that can significantly improve reproductive health along with to avoid a large number of unwanted births to reduce the fertility. The biological determinants of human reproduction indicate that contraception and induced abortion represent alternative means of achieving the same aggregate level of fertility in population. Birth interval is an indicator of reproductive health. The analysis of different birth intervals can provide insight into the mechanism underlying the fertility behaviour of the population by desegregating the reproductive process into a sequence of stages beginning with consummation of marriage followed  by first, second and successive births. Each birth may alter the family situation and so affects the probability and timing of future birth. Understanding the importance of   use of contraception and birth interval in fertility study an attempt has been made to study on the following topics.

  1. The analysis of timing of induced abortion and its correlates and factors influencing the use of contraception using regression analysis method.
  2. Identification of the factors that can affect fertility level by influencing the length of first birth, last but one birth and last birth interval have been made. For this purpose life table technique and proportional hazards regression model have been applied.
  3. Two probability models, one on waiting time to first conception and the other on first birth interval under some general conditions of fertility have been developed.

Model1:

Fx0(t)= θx0(x0 + t- a)( a+12-x0 -t)2Exp[-θx0{(x0 + t- a)( a+12-x0 -t)2t+3/2t2( a2+x02 +48+ 16a- 2ax0 – 16x0) + t3( x0 – a-8) + 1/4 t}]                                0<t<∞

Which is the density function of the waiting time of first conception with two parameters ‘a’ and  ‘θx0 ‘  Where

t= Waiting time of first conception, a= age at which women becomes able to conceive. θx0 = Age constant depending on X0

And the density function of finite ‘t’ is given by  Fx0 (t)/ (fx0 (t)dt), The model was well fitted to the survey data.

Model-2:

Which is the density function of first birth interval considering age at marriage distribution. There are three parameters in the model viz and which were estimated by maximum likelihood estimation method.  The model was then applied to a data set drawn from a demographic survey.

RESEARCH BACKGROUND:

The bell metal industry in India employees a large number of artisans and workers and produce variety of goods ranging from low value household goods to high value decorative products. The entire industry is unorganized where the artisans work from their home. The working condition is very poor, long working hours and the earning is meager. The artisans are exposed to the exploitation of the middleman in absence of   well established marketing link and very little or no access to credit from any bank or financial institutions. Most of the artisans being either uneducated or semi literate and not aware of the different development schemes of the government and also about the modern tools and technological up gradation productivity improvement and cost reduction. The artisans have no exposure to the market condition and demand pattern that is prevalent in other parts of the country. They do not have strong and active association to represent the pitiable condition to the authorities. They are also deprived of credit facilities by various financial institutions which is affecting the production process adversely.  The    people of Assam are emotionally and culturally attached with the utensils of the bell metal industry .But in recent years industry has faced some serious problems threatening its existence .The present condition of the industry is very critical. Most of the artisans are faced to leave the industry. The socio economic conditions of the artisans are deplorable
