Family and Changing Gender Roles

The ISSP Family and Changing Gender Roles module series comprises four cross-national surveys conducted in 1988, 1994, 2002 and 2012. Successive surveys are always partial replications of earlier surveys.

The ISSP Family and Changing Gender Roles modules mainly deal with gender related issues, such as attitudes towards women’s employment, marriage, children and financial support, household management and partnership.
