The purpose of this exploratory study is to shed more light on the mechanisms of first childbearing at higher ages from the mid-1970s to the early 1990s, based on a comparative research design. To detect a possibly gendered pattern, we analyze data on women and men separately, extracted from the Swedish and Hungarian FFS, using the method of hazard regression. The results show that the late transition to parenthood is strongly influenced by age, previous partnership experience, and current union status for both sexes, and mainly for women by educational attainment.
