Investigation into life plans and family planning
Work and a desire for children, contraception and family planning, reconciliation problems and deferring starting a family: are these all women’s issues? At least in public discourse and research it still looks that way. “Men’s lives” is one of the still rather rare studies investigating the role of men in matters relating to family planning and starting a family. 1,500 men aged between 25 and 54 were interviewed.
Study on women’s lives and family planning
How do women shape and evaluate their lives today and what role does family planning play in their lives? These questions are the focus of this investigation on women’s reproductive life stories. More than 1,400 women between the ages of 20 and 44 were surveyed between 1998 and 1999.
