This chapter presents a detailed analysis of fertility transition in Hong Kong and Taiwan. While very different from the mainland and people living there are not subject to the strict government birth control policies, the trajectory of fertility changes in Hong Kong and Taiwan has been broadly similar to that observed in the mainland. Useful information on tempo and quantum effects on fertility and the impact of recuperation on changes in cohort fertility are provided.

Keywords:   fertility decline, tempo effect, recuperation, cohort fertility
