Fertility & Families Survey (FFS)

Fertility and Family Surveys (FFS) were conducted in the 1990s in 23 member States of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). The surveys are the direct forerunner to the Generations and Gender Survey and the data are therefore highly comparable. The project concluded in 2000 with the FFS Flagship Conference. The micro-data of the surveys is available for research to registered users.

Harmonized Histories

The Harmonized Histories data file was created by the Non-Marital Childbearing Network. It harmonizes childbearing and marital histories from GGP countries with data from Spain, United Kingdom, United States and Uruguay. The data file builds on the public release files of the GGS by further harmonizing and standardizing the histories within the GGP and ensuring the data is ready for use in event history analysis. Access to the harmonized histories file is provided through the GGP User Space.

GGP Contextual Database

The Contextual Database gives easy and open access to comparable, aggregated contextual data, which can be linked to the individual level data of the Generations and Gender Surveys. It contains demographic, economic, and policy indicators. We provide data at the national level, and, wherever possible, at the regional level, for GGP countries as well as other countries in Europe, North America.
