Later fertility in Europe: How far can childbearing be postponed without being forgone?

Already in the 1980s, Menken (1985) posed a question which is now more relevant than ever before: “Age and Fertility: how late can you wait?”. This issue has become prominent for individuals as well as for countries, as European societies have witnessed uninterrupted increase in the age at childbirth for more than four decades.

Using advanced demographic methods and microsimulation techniques, this project investigates later childbearing at the individual and aggregate level. It explores especially the differences between men and women and by level of education.
