Preliminary results show clear class gradient in cohort fertility. The analysis will be further developed by a more detailed modeling of the different stages in the fertility transition, distinguishing pre-transition, early-transition, late transition, and post-transition. It will provide a picture of class differences in fertility in different parts of the world at different stages of the transition.
