After the fall of the Berlin Wall, East Germany experienced an unprecedented temporary drop in fertility driven by economic uncertainty.

Finally, our ability to compare siblings means that we can reject that our results stem from a time of birth effect. [web URL: http://www.journals.uchicago.edu/doi/abs/10.1086/690830]
