Title Intergenerational transmission of relative fertility and life course patterns
Date 1987
Description In many countries fertility trends over the last century have been characterized by sustained declines and the dissemination of a relatively sophisticated contraceptive knowledge. Many possible avenues for the dissemination of such knowledge exist among contemporary populations. There has, however, been only limited success in confirming the anticipated central role of the family as a social institution providing for the dissemination of this knowledge across generations.
