This paper presents simulations of reproductive histories by the Monte Carlo model, checking several conditions of fecundability and heterogeneity, to calculate sampling errors of fertility rates and correlation between birth intervals. Four simulations were run: Sri Lankan married women (data from a cohort of women married at age 20-24 from the World Fertility Survey of 1975), compared to natural fertility with breastfeeding, each at constant fecundability and heterogeneous fecundability… Expand
