Dr. S. Shamshad | S. Shameela | A. Indira Priyadarsini


Abstract: Consanguinity refers to intra-familial marriage and is commonly used to refer cousin marriage. Consanguineous marriages are frequent in many populations in India. The study was conducted on 1050 Muslim families to investigate the impact of financial status on frequency of consanguineous marriages. The result from this study reveals that, in LIG, the prevalence of abortions, IUDs, PMBs, NTDs, MRs and CHDs are higher in consanguineous mothers than non consanguineous mothers. No/Less cases were found among MIG and HIG. This study clearly indicates that the financial status plays an important role.
