Отношение к мерам стимулирования рождаемости по данным микропереписи 2015 г.

Демографическое обозрение. 2018. Т. 5. № 3. С. 25-56.

The article aims to evaluate the possible motivational potential (in terms of having more children than planned) of various measures of family policy listed in the questionnaire of the Russian Microcensus-2015. During the last several decades, fertility in Russia has been below the level of simple reproduction. The state, starting in 2005, has expressed an interest in finding effective measures to raise fertility in the country. The latest Microcensus had, among other objectives, the goal of “testing” the attractiveness of different policy measures for the general population. These included both already existing policies (federal and regional “maternity capitals”, land grants) and those which were hypothetical at the moment (prolongation of paid childcare leave until the child reaches the age of three, a guaranteed place in kindergarten, benefits equal to the cost of living for every child starting from the third, tax benefits, flexible working hours/work from home, and interest-free loans for the purchase of housing).
