Summary/Abstract: The attention of demographs has always been attracted by the problem of factor determinance of fertility. The author presents the basic results and influences from a research he conducted into the link between fertility and a number of demographic, economic and social factors. He uses data from the 1965, 1975 and 1985 censuses. His analysis is based on the variation between conditional one-dimensional and two-dimensional distributions. The variation degree is established with the help of an integral coefficient of structural differences, arithmetical mean value, standard deviation and coefficients of asymmetry and excess. With the aid of the filtering variables method he establishes control over factors which are assumed to be upsetting the manifestation of the connections under study. The effect from the control carried out is accounted for both by the above mentioned measurements and by the correlation ratio.
