Fertility and Well-Being


Social and Spatial Distance in the Fertility Transition

Sebastian Klüsener, Joshua R. Goldstein; in Collaboration with Martin Dribe (Lund University, Sweden), Francesco Scalone (University of Bologna, Italy)

The fertility transition was characterized by substantial social-class and spatial variation in terms of both the onset and the intensity of the fertility decline. We explore the determinants of this variation in order to improve our understanding of how social change is moderated by social and spatial distance.Detailed description
