Abstract [en]

This paper seeks to explore the tensions between labour force attachment and work hours on the one hand, and childbearing intentions on the other hand. Relying on the capability approach developed by Amartya Sen, we study fertility intentions of young adult women in Sweden, in the first decade of the 21st century. Data extracted from the Swedish Young Adult Panel Study of 1999 and 2003 are analyzed. Our preliminary results suggest that weak labour market position, in terms of unemployment, but also short part-time work, increases uncertainty regarding childbearing intentions, especially among women who do not yet have children.
