This book contributes new ideas in order to shift the Cliometrics of the Family from where it is to where it ought to be. It is addressed at scholars who want to approach the family topic in a quantitative manner, something which a growing number of economic and social historians have begun doing. It brings together papers from the session “Global Patterns in Family Structures and Their Impact on Development” held at the World Economic History Congress in Kyoto in 2015 and a number of other papers related to the subject.
