Abstract: Through the use of quantitative analytical procedures, this source examines the effects of religiosity upon wanted family size, anticipated completed family size, months of exposure per live birth, and contraceptive efficiency among Mexican Americans in Austin, Texas. The author concludes that religion has little measurable effect upon fertility patterns, and points to socioeconomic and cultural factors as possibly having a greater relevance to them.
