Abstract
:

The total fertility rate (TFR) in Hong Kong has decreased significantly in the past 30 years and there have been many explanations for the decline. The delays in marriage and childbearing, which lead to increase in spinsterhood and curtailment of giving births, are believed to be the major reasons. This feature article employs decomposition technique to split the change in the TFR in Hong Kong into two components : (I) change in proportion of now married females; and (ii) change in marital fertility rate.
