Who prefers zero? Attitudes towards childlessness in Russia and in its capital city

P. 312.
Biryukova S., Tyndik A.

The current study provides new insights into explaining individual differences in the attitude toward childlessness in Russia. The main research aim is defining who are childless people in modern Russia and to what extent this status is compulsory (i.e. reproductive norms are lowered due to unfavorable life circumstances) or truly voluntary. Moscow is examined separately within the research as the most advanced in respect to the second demographic transition region of the country.

This is a short abstract in the conference book. Long abstract is available at the web site of the European Population Conference 2014.
