Twenty Years of Single Motherhood in the Czech Republic (1986-2005)
Czech Demography, 2008
URL, JabRef BibTex, Abstract
The increasing frequency of single motherhood, recently observed in the Czech Republic and mostly experienced by young, low-educated women, seems not to be a deliberate choice. The attributes of those mothers (mostly delivering only the first birth at younger age) have not changed over the last twenty years. On the other hand, traditional norms, expressed by legal marriage and subsequent parenthood, are the predominant patterns for university graduates. Social differentiation (based on educational attainment) regarding legal marriage or non-marital births has been deepening in the Czech society over time.
