The economic trends of the nineties show for all transition countries that they entered a profound crisis of structural caesura in the initial phase of the transition into a market economy order. This has plunged large sections of the populations in these countries into a difficult economic situation by virtue of unemployment, inflation, impoverishment, devaluation of education and qualifications or changes in social structure, to which they have reacted with a rapid change in demographic pattern. The ex-socialist countries experienced abrupt demographic changes since the beginning of the 1990s. Nuptiality and fertility dropped to unprecedented low level; extra-marital cohabitation and the share of extra-marital births increased tremendously, rapid postponement of these events took places; migration increased significantly. All these new demographic trends were observed in all countries. Mortality was more divergent: it increased in some countries and remained about constant or decreased in others. - (IfL)
