The paper examine the effects of household composition and socio-economic context on reproductive process in nineteenth-century Italy, comparing and contrasting a rural Tuscan community and a urban neighborhoods of Venice. The local economic context will also be accounted for by introducing proxies for short term variations in economic conditions in the community. We consider reproduction as a function of the demographic characteristics of each couple, their reproductive histories, the structure of the household in which they live, and the individual and family responses to epidemics and short term economic stress.

Abstract

The paper examine the effects of household composition and socio-economic context on reproductive process in nineteenth-century Italy, comparing and contrasting a rural Tuscan community and a urban neighborhoods of Venice. The local economic context will also be accounted for by introducing proxies for short term variations in economic conditions in the community. We consider reproduction as a function of the demographic characteristics of each couple, their reproductive histories, the structure of the household in which they live, and the individual and family responses to epidemics and short term economic stress.
