Policy changes and family stability: The Swedish case
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Sociology.
2001 (English)In: International Journal of Law, Policy and the Family, ISSN 1360-9939, E-ISSN 1464-3707, Vol. 15, no 1, 118-134 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

During the last few decades, policies concerning family dissolution and gender equality have changed radically in Sweden accompanied by growing family instability. This development raises the question whether policies influence family behaviour. By analysing data on families with children, extracted from the Swedish Family Survey of 1992-93, some interesting policy effects are detected. Although the no-fault divorce law had hardly any long-term effect on family stability in Sweden, joint custody and father's use of parental leave seem to be important. Also, findings regarding mothers' education and employment status indicate the influence of policy, at least indirectly, on family disruption.
