According to official statistics, family migration has been the major mode of migration to the OECD area in recent years, making up close to 40% of the permanent migration inflow in total.1 Family migrants represent also a significant part of the cross-border movements within the EU and make up, as data from the European Labour Force Survey suggest, nearly a third (ca. 400,000 individuals) of the intra-European mobility of EU-citizens in 2015.

In the past decades, European societies have experienced significant changes in partnership, family and fertility dynamics. Marriage rates have declined in all European countries, non-marital cohabitation has become common, and divorce and separation have significantly increased. Childbearing has been postponed, but fertility levels fluctuate over time and vary across countries. Growing immigrant and ethnic minority populations have contributed to the diversity of family forms and individual life courses. [...]

What does the data revolution tell us about population trends and what does it not tell us? Is childbearing increasingly becoming a problem of social justice? Does a higher proportion of older people and pensioners increase the likelihood of intergenerational conflicts? What role do differences in the coexistence of migrant families play in their economic integration? [...]

Today about a half of the world population lives in countries with fertility around or below two births per woman. Post-transitional fertility rates have often been unstable, undergoing unexpected downturns, upswings and reversals. To account for these developments new theories, methods, and measures have been proposed. These advances have been stimulated by an emergence of new datasets that allow in-depth comparisons of period and cohort fertility and their components between countries and subnational regions. [...]
