Partnership and Fertility - a Revolution?

29 - 31 May 2000

Brussels

The FFS Flagship Conference was organised by the Population Activities Unit (PAU), UNECE, CBGS (Brussels) and UNFPA with sponsorship of the European Commission and under the auspices of EAPS.

In the 1990s the Population Activities Unit (PAU) of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) coordinated the Fertility and Family Survey (FFS) project. Cross-national comparable data on fertility and family behaviour were collected in 23 ECE Member States. These surveys have generated a wealth of information for a better description and explanation of changes in partnership and fertility behaviour. More than 60 projects of comparative research using the FFS Standard Recode Files have been launched.

As a kind of an end-of-project event, the Flagship Conference was held from 29 to 31 May 2000 in Brussels. The organizing committee members were: G. Beets, NIDI, the Netherlands, J. Holzer, Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland, L. Østby, Central Bureau of Statistics, Norway, A. Pinnelli, University ‘La Sapienza’, Italy, K. Kiernan, London School of Economics, United Kingdom, A. Klinger, Central Statistical Office, Hungary, R. Schoenmaeckers, CBGS, Belgium, L. Toulemon, INSEE, France, P. Turcotte, Statistics Canada, Canada, M. Macura, UNECE/PAU, Switzerland, M. Corijn, UNECE/PAU, Switzerland.
