The idea of the Human Fertility Database was largely inspired by the success story of the Human Mortality Database that has become an excellent resource of high-quality mortality data for the international research community since its launch in Their expertise and experience with such a major data collection effort has enabled the rapid take-off of the HFD project. The last decade saw several important research results closely related to extensive collection of fertility data. In particular, numerous studies on international fertility trends by Gerard Calot, Jean-Paul Sardon and Tomas Frejka , based on the Observatoire demographique europeen ODE collection of fertility data, indicated the advantages of analyzing detailed fertility data in a comparative perspective and highlighted the need for more intensive efforts in international data collection. They all shared the view that the low availability of standardized, detailed and comparable fertility data hinders 'state of the art' research on contemporary fertility. In , Joshua R.

Cohort Reproductive Patterns in the Nordic Countries. Total fertility rates were declining from peaks experienced by early s cohorts for 20 successive cohorts.
The decline ceased among the s and s cohorts, because fertility deficits of young women were compensated with increased fertility when women reached their late twenties and thirties. The relative stability of completed fertility of these cohorts is attributed to Nordic social policies. Fertility deficits of young women in s cohorts are comparatively large.
For their completed fertility to be similar to that of earlier ones, there is considerably more catching up to do. What remains an open issue is whether social policies will be sufficiently effective for couples born in the late s and the s to have births not born earlier in their lives.
