Early marriages,this increases the number of children that a married woman can bear.Lack of effective family planning practices partly due to ignorance or inaccessibility,there is general lack of widespread and effective birth control measures.Improved medical facilities thus reducing the number of deaths.Improved nutrition or diet thus lowering mortality rate.The traditional practices such as marrying of many wives and sex preferences on boys verses girls.Improved hygiene thus reducing diseases and death cases.Pride to have large families,in traditional agricultural societies where most of the work is done by hands,a large family provides a useful source of cheap labour.Immorality like prostitution leads to high birth rate and lastly the high fertility rate among women.
