Family planning and migration throughout life
Women with a migration background account for a considerable proportion of the female population in the reproductive phase in many German towns and cities. The Federal Centre for Health Education (BZgA) is increasingly turning its attention to the life situations of this heterogeneous group and has therfore commissioned the study this study. The aim is to gain an insight into the varying need for information and support in matters concerning family planning for selected migrant groups as well as to gain an insight into social and cultural influencing factors
Pregnancy experience and prenatal screening
To find out more about the subjective state of mind of pregnant women, their attitude and their desire for information and to be better able to tailor the new media, materials and in-service training opportunities to them, the BZgA commissioned a survey of pregnant women. The respondent provided information about various aspects of their pregnancy experience, their experiences with pre-natal screening and their attitudes and expectations.
A desire for children and starting a family amongst women and men with university degrees
The study investigates the attitude and motivation of women and men with university degrees regarding starting a family. Women and men in Eastern and Western Germany are having fewer children than they would like. Women with a university degree in particular are have their first child very late or they remain childless because of reconciliation problems.
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.
