At that time, the family planning services were mostly available only in urban areas (NPFDB: Kuala Lumpur, Report on Malaysian Population and Family Survey, 1974). Family planning was first made as an official policy during the First Malaysia Plan in 1966, successfully through the National Planning Programme (NPP). The objectives of this study is to examine the fertility levels of respondents whose practiced family planning compared to that of who have never practiced it and this study also to study the link between socio-economic and cultural variables with those eight intermediate variables on fertility in Malaysia.
