Extrait de la présentation en ligne :
"The aim of this seminar is to bring together researchers from various disciplines interested in the relationship and interaction between socio-economic stratification and fertility. More specifically, the objective is to bring forward new empirical evidence on the impact of socio-economic status on various fertility outcomes before, during and after the demographic transition in a range of different countries.
The seminar will explore processes of social stratification and their relationship to fertility in a variety of contexts. Important indicators of social stratification include social class, income and education. We welcome contributions dealing with different parts of the world that exemplify different demographic transitions, using different kinds of micro-level data and methods of analysis. Examples include longitudinal historical population registers, micro-level censuses, and contemporary surveys in the developing world. Although most papers are expected to make empirical contributions, more theoretical or methodological papers are also welcome, as long as they deal with the main topic of the seminar in the context of the demographic transition."
