I've found the need for examining the relationship between each of parental fertility history, marriage history as well as sexual history and fertility behaviour of respondents in developing countries but could not find relevant data in DHS.
The fertility history being addressed include number of children by mother(for women data) and by father(for men data), how many are males and females, age of mother at first marriage, ( and first sexual intercourse if obtainable), mother's known number of sexual partners, mother's number of unions, father's number of wives (for men data), etc. I supposed some of this parental fertility, marriage and sexual histories would have a significant relationship with the respondents' fertility behaviour, marital experiences and sexual behaviours. Thanks.

I think that in the process also, it is equally important to combine quantitative data with qualitative insights, especially on sensitive matters such as age at first sex or sexual history. We can help enrich the insights drawn from the quantitative aspect of analyzing this topic. Thank you :)
