In this analysis we focus on spatial differentiations emerging in two successive waves of demographic innovation in Belgium. More specifically, we shall explore to what extent the unfolding of the spatial pattern of the so-called Second Demographic Transition (SDT) from the mid-1960s onward replicated that of the historical First Demographic Transition (FDT), which essentially spanned the period from about 1870 till the baby boom of the 1960s. In addition to establishing long-term continuities with respect to demographic regime characteristics, we also look at causes, using the Coale "Ready, Willing, and Able" paradigm and its subsequent elaboration.
