AbstractThe study investigates the relationship between age at marriage and the length of first birth interval in two states of India: Uttar Pradesh and Kerala. Life tables of first‐birth intervals and median first‐birth intervals are computed for several subgroups of the study population. Multivariate hazards modelling technique is used to study the net effect of age at marriage, controlling for a multiple of socioeconomic factors. The result shows that the average first‐birth interval varies by age at marriage and is much longer in Uttar Pradesh than in Kerala.
