Fertility and Family Surveys (FFS)

The Fertility and Family Surveys (FFS) are a series of comparable surveys on fertility and family change that were carried out in ECE member countries in the 1990s. The Swedish Family Survey of 1992-1993 included a sample of 4,984 women and men born between 1949 and 1969. The objective of the survey was to describe the modern family, including unmarried couples; analyze variations and trends in family formation and fertility; describe the interactions among family life, education, and employment; examine changes in labor force participation; illustrate differences by socioeconomic status in attitudes toward the family and family policies; and make international comparisons possible.
