|Abstract:||Introduction: Fertility in Peru has been the object of analysis from different perspectives, due to the diversity of contexts that influence the change of reproduction patterns in women. Objective: Determine which sociodemographic variables influence the fact that Peruvian women have a high fertility. Method and Material: It is a cross-sectional study, the data collection was obtained through the Demographic and Family Health Survey of 2016. Results: It was found that the factors associated with a high fertility are: lack of schooling in woman (RP: 3.01, 95% CI: 2.15-4.22, p < .001), more than one union (PR: 1.46, 95% CI: 1.41-1.52; p < .001), children mortality (PR: 1.52, 95% CI: 1.47-1.57, p < .001), current contraceptive use (PR: 1.30, 95% CI: 1.15-1.47, p < .001), to be a victim of violence (PR: 1.09; 95% CI: 1.05-1.12; p < .001). Conclusion: The fertility behavior of Peruvian women corresponds to the current cultural reproduction patterns that include having few children at an older age. In the socioeconomic level, greater education of women is an influential factor. © 2018 Sociedad Chilena de Obstetricia y Ginecologia. All rights reserved.|
