Низкая рождаемость: теории и подходы к объяснению
Author presents the key points of modern theories and concepts that explain the processes of the fertility level’s transformations. In the same time with a brief description of the main provisions of some of the concepts we have tried to present them in a certain chronological order. You can not say that there are absolutely opposite concepts, but rather each of them pays attention to any aspect of fertility changing or tries to present changes in the general transformation processes in the society. Knowledge of the basic concepts enriches our understanding of the process of fertility. We see that studying of the fertility is intimately linked with many other demographic social and economic and psychological processes.
