In many European states, fertility and marriage behavior have undergone significant changes over the last decades. In the wake of such processes, new demographic behavioral patterns evolve in some regions earlier or more strongly so than in others. An analysis of the spatial origins of these changes and their development over space and time provides new insights into the underlying factors.
Keywords: Germany, fertility, spatial analysis
