Using data from 115 nations, we find AFB is associated with decreased TFR, but the relationship varies regionally. The effect is strongest for Africa (regression coefficient = −0.5, that is, 0.5 fewer children born with each year's delay in AFB), weaker in Latin America (coefficient = −0.3) and Asia (coefficient = −0.09), and nonsignificant for Europe. Controlling for socioeconomic variables (literacy and Gini coefficient of inequality), AFB remains a significant
