The Desire for Children and Starting a Family in male and female university and college graduates

Results of a representative survey

This study contains the report of a representative survey by the Bundeszentrale für gesundheitliche Aufklärung among male and female university graduates in early middle-age.
The goal of the survey was to gather empirical data which would provide, on the basis of the representative nature of the sample, reliable information on attitudes towards children and the compatibility of children and career, on the desire for children, and on behaviour related to starting a family.

It is particularly appropriate to survey those in early middle-age (see below), because they are in the final stages of the family-planning process; their plans have been largely realized. Different ages were set for men and women in the sample in order to catch each sex in precisely this final phase.

This means that we surveyed women aged between the ages of 35 and 44, and men between the ages of 40 and 49. The survey was carried out by telephone during the period from 15 July to 28 July 2004.
