Irish Fertility at the Turn of the Twentieth Century (ICPSR 34517) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

The goal of this project was to use the case of the Irish at the beginning of the twentieth century to investigate several explanations offered for the timing and pace of the European fertility transition. Using a sample constructed from the manuscript schedules of the Irish census of 1911 and the already-extant samples from the United States census of 1910, this study examined the roles of religion, class, migration, and neighbors in the Irish fertility transition.
