Demographic Transition in Europe - Global Problems of Population Growth - Robert Wyman - Lecture 9 of 24 - Video-lecture

Video-lecture, Medicine

Description: Prior to the Demographic Transition, fertility in northwestern Europe was controlled by limiting marriage. Marriage was regulated by landowners and the churches, and was not allowed unless a man had accumulated the resources necessary to support a family. Long periods of being landless, a servant, or an apprentice, precluded marriage. Once married, there was no control of fertility.
