Které hodnoty ovlivňují vstup do manželství? [Which Values Affect Marriage Entry?]
SOCIÁLNÍ STUDIA, 2014
URL, JabRef BibTex, Abstract
In recent decades the Czech Republic has experienced, like other countries, fundamental changes in family and reproductive behaviour – including declining marriage rates and marriage postponement. These changes are interpreted through the second demographic transition perspective, which postulates the strengthening of values that have a negative effect on individuals’ decisions to marry. Nevertheless, the effect of individual value profiles on marriage entry has not been explicitly modelled. Therefore, we use data from two waves of Generations and Gender Survey from 2005 and 2008 and investigate the effect of selected values (measured in the first wave) on later marriage entry. We find only partial support for the second demographic transition theory (e.g., materialism increases the likelihood of marriage among respondents outside the labour market). Overall, we observe a much weaker effect from value variables than we expected according to the second demographic transition theory.
