Download Families in Austria 2009 – 2013
The Austrian Institute for Family Studies at the University of Vienna and the Vienna Institute of Demography of the Austrian Academy of Sciences jointly planned and prepared the Generations and Gender Survey (GGS). The Austrian GGS was conducted by Statistics Austria with the financial support of the Federal Ministry of Economy, Family and Youth, the Federal Ministry of Science and Research and the Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection.
In Austria, the first wave was carried out in 2008/9 and includes 5,000 persons (3,000 women and 2,000 men) aged 18–45 years. Therefore, Austria deviates from the international programme, as it focuses on the persons in the reproductive ages only. The second wave was carried out in 2012/13 where, besides the re-interviewed panel respondents, the next cohorts of young adults were taken into account as well.
This publication summarises first results based on the second wave of the Austrian GGS. It includes a selection of articles originally published in German, available at www.ggp-austria.at.

This publication uses the results of analyses presented in articles and studies in which data from both waves of the study were used.
Download Changing Families, Complex Lives
Family relationships have changed a lot over the past few decades. Today’s families differ considerably from the 1950s where a male breadwinner was supported by his doting housewife. Families have become less stable, more complex and highly diversified. The rapid ageing of European populations has also contributed to this rapid pace of change and new types of families have emerged alongside new relationships between generations and between genders. Understanding these changes will help us meet many of the challenges that societies face today such as: How do we support and care for older people? How is disadvantage inherited? Why are women having fewer children? Changing Families, Complex Lives presents research aimed at answering these questions.
The Research Note Series presents a sample of research findings on central themes of the Generations and Gender Survey. These notes showcase the broad range of individual life course and family dynamics issues into which GGS datasets offer unique insights.
