6 Some Implications of Today’s Rapid Fertility Declines in the Islamic World We have made the empirical case in this chapter that a sea-change in fertility levels, and by extension, in attendant patterns of family formation, is now underway in the Islamic world – even if this sea-change remains curiously un-recognized and undiscussed even in the societies it is so rapidly transforming. Why this should be the case is an important question, but one that will not detain us here. Instead, we shall conclude by touching a few of the more obvious implications of these big demographic changes for the years ahead.

It has often been difficult to test that proposition in a methodologically sound and rigorous manner, as the aforementioned Pritchett study observed – and as Pritchett argued – methodologically sound investigations generally indicated that the demographic impact of family planning programs tended to be marginal.

Socioeconomic factors, to be sure, may well affect the desired family sizes that women of childbearing age report in these DHS surveys – in fact they surely do. But the critical determinant of actual fertility levels in Muslim and non-Muslim societies alike at the end of the day would appear to be attitudinal and volitional, rather than material and mechanistic. How do the various factors mentioned thus far interact in influencing fertility levels in Muslim-majority countries? We may get a sense of this complex interplay 2 2 Fertility Decline in the Muslim World, c.
