Family and the young

The appraisal of job, partnership, family, and the role of women in particular has been exposed to strong fluctuations. infas continuously accompanies the development with its surveys and presents the resulting change and its challenges at an early stage.


Classic role models erode increasingly, and the variants of family life, partnership or child care are steadily on the rise.

Subjects of infas research concerning family world:

  • change of the social state and its impact on family structures
  • the role of women within the family
  • reconciliation of work and family life
  • child-rearing and education
  • family and social status
