Germany’s Total Fertility Rate (TFR) has been ranging between 1.3 and 1.5 births per woman for decades, making it a low-fertility country with considerable demographic change and ageing. Simultaneously, families have also been experiencing fundamental changes, resulting from the diversification of life forms and the dissemination of dual-earner couples. The research area “Family and Fertility” aims to contribute to explaining these demographic and familial changes and to identify group-specific differences and recent developments.
