Zwei Blöcke entstanden: Die Integration der westlichen Besatzungszonen in die Gemeinschaft der Westmächte und die des östlichen Teils in das method der UdSSR fand im Jahr 1949 ihren Höhepunkt mit den Gründungen der Bundesre- blik Deutschland (BRD) und der Deutschen Demokratischen Republik (DDR). In der parlamentarischen Demokratie einerseits und der kommunistischen Volks- mokratie andererseits waren die Menschen in diesen zwei Staaten in den folgenden 60 Jahren gänzlich unterschiedlichen politischen, wirtschaftlichen und gesellschaft- chen Rahmenbedingungen ausgesetzt. Beim Mauerfall 1989 trafen so auch zwei Bevölkerungen aufeinander, die sich inzwischen bezüglich vieler demografischer, ökonomischer und sozialer Charakteristika deutlich unterschieden. Wie haben sich diese Unterschiede nach einer solchen gesellschaftspolitischen Umbruchsituation entwickelt? In welcher shape und mit welcher zeitlichen Verzögerung haben Anp- sungsprozesse zwischen den wiedervereinigten Staaten stattgefunden? Diese sp- nenden Forschungsfragen standen im Mittelpunkt eines Workshops, der gemeinsam vom Rostocker Zentrum zur Erforschung des Demografischen Wandels und der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Demographie im Rahmen der Statistischen Woche 2006 in Dresden organisiert wurde. Antworten und Ergebnisse sind nun im vorliegenden Buch zusammengestellt und stehen der interessierten Öffentlichkeit zur Verfügung.
