Iran is experiencing high population growth. From survey data on children ever born and proportionate ages of women at marriage, it was found that by deliberately stressing lower fertility for young married women and by moderately delaying marriage, it is possible to reduce fertility to the extent of 1% growth. Thus in the future, family planning for married couples can be expected to expand; furthermore, family planning may also expand to provide counseling to those people considering marriage. This paper introduces a new method for fertility estimation, other than differential fertility in terms of the age-specific fertility rate.
