Fertility, living arrangements, care and mobility

By Ernestina Coast


There are four main interconnecting themes around which the contributions in this book are based. This introductory chapter aims to establish the broad context for the chapters that follow by discussing each of the themes. It does so by setting these themes within the overarching demographic challenge of the twenty-first century – demographic ageing. Each chapter is introduced in the context of the specific theme to which it primarily relates and there is a summary of the data sets used by the contributors to illustrate the wide range of cross-sectional and longitudinal data analysed

Topics: HM Sociology, HN Social history and conditions. Social problems. Social reform, HQ The family. Marriage. Woman, HT Communities. Classes. Races
