Demography and Migration

Demography and Migration

(p.124) 5 Demography and Migration
Migration and Inequality in Germany 1870-1913


Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the relationship between migration and demography in Germany 1870-1913. In this period Germany was going through the ‘demographic transition’, usually defined as a movement from a state in which both fertility and mortality are high to one in which both are considerably lower. The German experience shows that the demographic experiences of two regions which were major sources of potential migrants in the period — the south and the east — were very different. The chapter also compares the demographic background to two periods of heavy out-migration: that which affected southern and western Germany in the earlier part of the 19th century and the movement out of eastern Germany in the period after 1870.

Keywords:   Germany, migration, demographic background, south, east, demographic transition
