This study investigates childbearing intentions and the realisation thereof in the context of the Czech Republic, a country in which social, political and economic transformation has resulted in rapid changes in demographic trends. From 1990 onwards, family formation was postponed and fertility rates declined sharply from 1.89 to 1.18 remaining below the „lowest-low? threshold until 2004. This paper uses Czech Generations and Gender Survey panel data from 2005 and 2008 to investigate the realisation / non-realisation of short-term fertility intentions. The author studies to what extent the intention of having a child plays a role in real behaviour and what impact might be assigned to other factors e.g. personal characteristics, life course experiences and socio-economic conditions.
