This chapter is concerned with two aspects of the . societies. For example, in Asian countries (e.g. Japan), out-of-wedlock childbearing is still rare and thought to be against the social norm. Whereas in some northern European countries (e.g. Sweden), more than half of children are born to unmarried parents.

The present study focuses on the relationship between annual variations in grain prices and annual fluctuations in fertility, nuptiality, mortality, and population growth in a number of pre-industrial European countries. The direction, magnitude, and temporal structure of the responses of vital rates to fluctuations in grain prices are.

In fact, some argue that migration is the catalyst for a third demographic transition (Coleman ). Demographic theory has explored in great detail the relationships of fertility and mortality to carrying capacity (and to other factors, such as distributional inequality).

Human ecology has explored in great detail the relationships between carrying capacity, population, and migration. Figure 1: Age-specific fertility rates for all women and for currently married women have them; children by choice not by chance. The MDHS indicates that 76 per cent of all couples want to avoid further childbirth for at least two years but that only 52 per cent of all couples are using a method of contraception.

Fertility among immigrants varies significantly. Some groups of immigrants or those from some regions tend to have birth rates that are much higher than that of natives, while others are more similar.
