BOOK: Childbearing Trends and Prospects in Low-Fertility Countries
This book by Tomas Frejka and Jean-Paul Sardon deals with childbearing trends in 30 European and English speaking countries. The authors had access to a unique collection of data from Institut National d'Etudes Demographiques which made it possible to calculate for each country, age specific fertility rates by single year of age for each calendar year covering 1945 to 2002. The principle conclusion is that cohort fertility will remain low and is likely to decline further. This trend is predominantly due to the very large increases in education levels and career options for women. ISBN: 1402024576 Publisher Kluwer Academic.
