Christoph Bühler studied Sociology at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. After finishing his Ph.D. at the Faculty of Social Sciences in Munich, he worked as researcher and senior researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock. His fields of study were fertility, reproductive decision making, social networks, and the transition from school to work. The regional focus was on Central and Eastern European countries during the times of substantive social change after the breakdown of state socialism.

Since May 2010, he is responsible for the field of activity of empirical social research at the Institute of Sociology, Leibniz Universität Hannover. His teaching activities are located at the areas of empirical research methods, statistics, population sociology, and micro-sociological theory. At Hannover, Christoph Buehler is continuing his research on fertility, currently focusing on ideal family size and reproductive preferences, and their appropriate measurement in surveys. He is also continuing his collaboration on the Generations and Gender Programme (GGP), where he has continuously contributed to the development of the programme’s survey instruments.
