Abstract

Mit der deutschen Vereinigung war ein massiver Einbruch der Geburtenzahlen in den neuen Bundesländern (NBL) verbunden. Diese Arbeit analysiert zum einen mit dem theoretischen Rahmen der neoklassischen Bevölkerungsökonomie die Incentivewirkungen der Institutionen, die vor und nach der Vereiningung in den NBL anzutreffen waren. Zum anderen wird im empirischen Teil mit Kohortendaten des Statistischen Bundesamts und den Individualdaten des Sozioökonomischen Panels die Bedeutung der möglichen Erklärungen analysiert. Nahezu alle verfügbare Evidenz spricht für eine Interpretation des Geburtenrückgangs als Anpassungsprozess an das westliche Fertilitätsmuster, das vor allem durch wesentlich spätere Geburten im Lebenszyklus einer Frau gekennzeichnet ist.
