Cohort fertility in former Yugoslavia

The project analysed cohort fertility in former Yugoslavia. Cohort fertility level and structure were studied using data from recent and past population censuses that asked women how many children they have ever born. As women lived most of their fertile lives in the 20th century during the era of Yugoslavia, some of their socio-economic conditions were comparable. On the other hand, many conditions were different in the regions that formed seven independent republics after 1991: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Slovenia.
