The increase in cohabitation and the role of marital status in family policies: a comparison of 12 European countries
The increase in cohabitation and the role of marital status in family policies: a comparison of 12 European countries
Across Europe, an increasing number of couples live together without being married and many raise children together. By analyzing data from the European Social Survey (ESS) and a self-constructed policy database, we compare the proportion of men and women who cohabit in twelve countries and their rights in different policy areas. This allows us to estimate the proportion of couples who are currently covered or fall outside the scope of family policies in their country.

Abstract

Across Europe, an increasing number of couples live together without being married and many raise children together. By analyzing data from the European Social Survey (ESS) and a self-constructed policy database, we compare the proportion of men and women who cohabit in twelve countries and their rights in different policy areas. This allows us to estimate the proportion of couples who are currently covered or fall outside the scope of family policies in their country.
