Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on regional contrasts in population development. Following an examination of regional variations in fertility and mortality, the major part of the chapter deals with migration. It first compares the regional effects of international and internal migration. Because different age groups show divergent migration flows, a second topic is the question of which selective regional effects of different age groups can be observed. The chapter discusses demographic consequences of population processes, with a focus on shrinking regions and cities and population ageing. It presents in detail the different demographic processes, which are responsible for such spatial disparities. In Germany demographic change is usually characterized by three trends: the population becomes 'fewer', 'greyer', and 'more diverse'. The chapter deals with the first two of these trends from a regional perspective.

Keywords: demographic change; fertility; Germany; internal migration; mortality; regional contrasts
