Efforts to reduce fertility constitute a significant concern in population policy planning. The handling of declining fertility in South Kalimantan from 2010 to 2020 has only decreased by 0.04. The main aim of this study is to determine the variables that significantly affect the fertility of women of childbearing age in the Province of South Kalimantan, Indonesia. This study makes use of Freedman's population studies theory. The data used is from the National Social-Economic Survey (SUSENAS) 2022. The independent variables included are the education of women of childbearing age, household income, age at first marriage for women of childbearing age, length of marriage for women of childbearing age, and infant mortality. Meanwhile, the dependent variable is the total fertility rate. The statistical method used is multiple linear regression. The results showed that all variables significantly affect fertility with infant mortality having the greatest influence on fertility. The Infant Mortality Rate has a very substantial impact on the statistical model.
