Statement of the problem. Since the early part of 1970, when the Commission on Population was mobilized, many family planning clinics have been put up in the different parts of the country to promote family planning, yet many people still refuse or hesitate to use their services. What are the underlying causes? The investigator thought that conducting this investigation may partly reveal the situation. The major purpose of this research project was to study the relationship between modernity attitude of married women and their (individual) fertility. Modernity attitude as measured in the context of political, economic, familial, and social factors is the independent variable and individual fertility, the dependent variable. The data obtained are centered upon the following questions: 1. What is the profile of the respondents described, in terms of their scores - obtained in the political, economic, familial, and social factors, the determinants of modernity attitude? 2. What is the association of each of the four factors (political, economic, familial, and social) to individual fertility? Is any relationship changed when some factors are suppressed? 3. What is the degree of association when a combination of two or more factors is studied in relation to the individual fertility? 4. Among the four factors of modernity attitude which has the highest association with individual fertility?
