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.

The question of "who gets what?" is fundamental in the debate around economic inequality in the social sciences and for society in general. To answer this question, the definition and unit of analysis of "who" is crucial. Often the household is considered as the appropriate unit of analysis, in particular when considering coresiding partners. Thereby, households are (implicitly) assumed to be unitary and intra-household inequality is ignored. [...]
