One of the efforts to reduce the population growth is by carrying out Family Planning Program with special emphasis on ‘Catur Warga’ (having two children in a family) and ‘Panca Warga’ (having three children in a family), sons or daughters are equally the same and make no difference at all. But there are some members of the society who are still unsatisfi ed of having two or three children that are all girls or boys. This research is done to fi nd out the dominant and decisive factors that infl uence a desire to have more children of a fertile-aged spouse who has got more than one alive- child by the analysis of logistic regression.
