|Interaction between fertility and infant mortality in an intergenerational perspective|
|Many studies in the past have emphasized the positive correlation between high infant mortality and high fertility, but how this operates remain unclear.
In this paper, we investigate these interdependent processes using data from the Demographic Data base at Umeň University. More specifically, we have data from regions in the northern part of Sweden, starting in the fifteenth century and ending around the year 1900.
In an earlier paper, we have studied the intergenerational aspects of infant mortality and in this paper we incorporate fertility. We investigate the interaction between the two processes and how patterns are tranferred from generation to generation.
