Fertility and Well-Being


Family Formation in Comparative Perspective

Sebastian Klüsener; in Collaboration with Trude Lappegård (University of Oslo; Statistics Norway, Oslo, Norway), Daniele Vignoli (University of Florence, Italy), Mikołaj Szołtysek (Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, Halle (Saale), Germany), Siegfried Gruber (University of Graz, Austria), Radoslaw Poniat (University of Bialystok, Poland)

Even though family formation processes have undergone some drastic changes over time, the current variation in these processes across countries and regions reflects in part long-standing differences. This project explores the determinants and the potential consequences of continuity and change in family formation patterns.Detailed description
