2009 (German)In: Zeitschrift für Familienforschung, ISSN 1437-2940, Vol. 21, no 3, 286-309 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This article deals with the association between educational level, educational line, and childlessness among Austrian and Swedish women born 1955-59. In both countries. In both countries women educated for teaching jobs or for health occupations have lower childlessness than women educated for other professions. However, childlessness by educational level differs markedly between the two countries. Swedish women with tertiary education have only slightly higher childlessness than women with lower educational attainment. In Austria, however, women with an education at high-school level or above remain significantly more often childless than women with a lower education.
