The Demography of the New Family. Part I

Tuesday, 17 July 2018: 17:30-19:20
RC41 Sociology of Population (host committee)

Language: English

The changes in household formation raise some important issues.

In this session we will focus on the health and wellbeing consequences of the increase in single parenthood, same sex households, and surrogate fertility.

In particular we will focus on the wellbeing of women and children.  Single parenthood often has socio-economic implications, which inversely affect health and wellbeing; surrogate mothers often come from disadvantaged social groups, and whether or not they improve their life chances is yet to be studied.
