According to the well-known hypothesis stated in "The New Home Economics", theory that it associated with the name of Becker, poverty leads to a high fertility. Throughout this text, this hypothesis will be tested using data from the 2005 Demographic and Health Survey of Congo, knowing that poverty will be tackled in a non-monetary and multidimensional approach; and fertility in a parity view, that is to say the number of children a woman gave birth during the five years preceding the survey.
