The dissolution of first-birth unions in Sweden

Abstract [en]

This paper is an attempt to shed more light on the relationship between changes in policies around family dissolution and increasing family instability among parents in Sweden from the mid-1960s to the early 1990s. Data extracted from the Swedish Family Survey of 1992/93 are analysed using the method of intensity (hazard) regression. The results suggest both direct and indirect policy effects. Such direct impacts are indicated for joint custody for children and for father's use of parental leave, while long-term influence of no-fault divorce law seems to be very limited on family stability. Indirect policy impacts are seen for the effects of educational levels and employment statuses on partnership dissolution. Also by marital status intersting differences were found regarding the determinants of parents' relationship stability in Sweden.
