Abstract: Fertility behavior is very complex phenomenon. Fertility is the most interest area of many demographers. The twenty first century has witnessed the great changes in fertility and socio-economic and demographic conditions of people have crossed its limit. It means the living standard has been increased. Furthermore, the concept of people has changed in relation withsocial, economic, political and demographic sectors. Due to political developments in Nepal positive and dynamic changes have been achievement in many sectors. I have selected the study entailed “A study on fertility behavior of woman” I have selected this subject because it is my home VDC and no research have done in this subject so I have selected this subject. The study of fertility is my key interest area as well. Therefore, I want to elaborate the poor-socio-economic and demographic status of people of study area. This study covers population in selected wards of Dayanagar VDC. The primary data was collected from five wards of Dayanagar VDC in Rupendehi district. The main cause of selecting these five wards is due to the densely populated area and those wards have different group of people reside like Tharu, yadav, Brahmin, Muslim etc which can represent the fertility behaviour of total VDC. The analysis and interpretation of the data were carried out by using frequencytables, cross tabulation, mean CEB with selected dependant and independent variables. Thisstudy has included 110 households.Ever married woman of reproductive aged 15-49 years as taken for study. Two type of information were included in the study. The 110 households had included 474 family members out of total population, where 47.68 percent were male and 52.32 percent were femels. Sex ratio is 91.12. Percent and the literacy rate of this VDC is 52.13, whichis quite lower than primary census report 2011. Marriage is nearly universal in this VDC. Tharu,yadav, Muslim and dalit people marry relatively at lower ages in comparison to other caste like Brahami and Cherties. This survey has concluded that the higher the education, lower the mean CEB. The main occupation status and use of contraception are found negatively associated with fertility. Similarly,the majority of respondents are found illiterate.
