The fertility transition in Asian Countries is part of the worldwide fertility transition- one of the most fundamental events of the last half of the 20th century. In general, this has been associated with greatly increased child survival and changes in the economy and society resulting from economic development. But there have been puzzling differences between countries. The fertility crisis used to refer to the countries with high fertility; now attention has shifted to those with very low fertility, a number of which are in Asia. Increasing non-marriage is an important factor in very low fertility. Non-marriage is closely related with educational levels, though the nature of the relationship is quite different for males and females.
