Как изменения гендерных и межпоколенческих отношений влияют на демографическое поведение? Случай Ингушетии

The article deals with the impact of gender and intergenerational relations on nuptial and marriage behav­ior in the Republic of Ingushetia, one of the Northern Caucasus region charac­terized by intergenerational and gender asymmetries in family life patterns. The authors analyze the results of a quantita­tive survey carried out among reproduc­tive women in Ingushetia in 2019.

The analysis shows that a number of param­eters indicative of a woman’s self-de­pendence (having a job and educational background) and the degree of female dependence on elder relatives in making important life decisions discover a sta­tistical relationship with the likelihood of entering into a marriage and having a first child. However the “direction” of this relationship is not always predicted by the available theories. In particular, the survey shows that a larger degree of “traditionalism” in gender and intergen­erational relations implies a later entry into the first marriage rather than an earlier one. The authors discuss possible reasons behind such unusual results de­tailing the existing ideas about possible impact of gender and intergenerational relations on demographic processes.
