  1. ncbi request reprint Learning in social networks and contraceptive choice
    H P Kohler
    Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, Rostock, Germany
    Demography 34:369-83. 1997
    ..This process of social learning leads to path-dependent adoption of fertility control within, and diversity in contraceptive practices across villages or social strata...

    Demography 38:1-16. 2001
    ..We apply our method to the Swedish baby boom and bust, and show that variance effects are important for evaluating the relative contributions of tempo and quantum effects to the fertility change from 1985 to 1995...
