Abstract

Behind a stable and relatively high fertility level in Norway during the 1990s we find increasing differences in the pattern of fertility both in regard to the timing of the first childbirth and number of children born. In this paper, data from the Central Population Register in Norway are used to provide a review of recent fertility trends and discuss the consequences of education level on differences in fertility patterns. The paper will also provide some indication of aspects that will be dealt with in future projects.
