How many children do young women and men wish to have? How large is the share of households which make use of external childcare for their children? How do adult children and their parents help one another? This publication presents the initial findings from the Families and Generations Survey, 2013. Certain areas from the Families and Generations topic for which no or little data was previously available were purposely selected for this analysis. The findings presented here provide important indications on the division of labour in households and families, on inter-generational relations as well as on people's desires and attitudes with regard to family lifestyles and the organisation of day-to-day life.
