5. Family Statistics
For a couple of decades family structures have been changing almost as fast as the economic environment in which these families evolve. The changes include a decreasing family size, alternative types of partnerships, and changes in labour division.
In this section, you will find answers to the following questions: how do families vary by type and size? How prevalent is cohabitation/marriage/divorce? What is the employment impact of parenthood? The section covers some key statistics, further statistics can be found at EUROSTAT and the OECD Family Database.
