about

The work investigates the impact of religiosity of women and men on their completed fertility in an international comparison considering a long time period. Sandra Hubert aims at uncovering all mechanisms through which religiosity and religious institutions can affect fertility. Hence, both the micro- and the macro-level of each country are explicitly integrated, and theoretically as well as empirically dealt with. The selection of differing countries rests upon the expectation that religiosity influences fertility decisions independently of the institutional context, social norms, state church-relations, and the national degree of religious vitality. These factors are intensively compared with each other at the country level. At the micro-level the impact of religiosity on fertility is tested by means of regressions and based on the Generations and Gender Survey. Results depend on gender, country, the diverse religious affiliations, and more.
Sandra Hubert is a research assistant at the social monitoring department of the German Youth Institute (DJI) in Munich, Germany.

Editorial Reviews

"The volume offers an overview of the different channels through which religion and religiosity matter for fertility in selected, different institutional settings in Europe. The first part of the volume presents an excellent state-of-the-art of the topic, providing a first-rate starting point for beginners as well as a well-organized review for experts. The second part suffers from some methodological problems, but offers a basis for future, longitudinal research on the 'impact' of religiosity on fertility." (Daniele Vignoli, European Journal of Population, Vol. 31, 2015)
