First birth interval has always been at the forefront of demographers due to its impact on all demographic and non-demographic characteristics of a female. In our present paper we analysed the data from N.F.H.S.-3 for two states viz; Kerala and Rajasthan. We tried to identify the link between various socio-economic and demographic factors with first birth interval of a female. In addition to statistical measures, proportional hazard analysis in combination with life table was applied to investigate the impact of various factors on first birth interval.
