Research Group Leader: Tomáš Sobotka

The research group "Comparative European Demography" studies fertility preferences, fertility, childlessness, union formation and dissolution, family changes and couple relations and their interconnections. It combines research based on individual- and aggregate-level data and puts a strong focus on education differences in family behaviours. The group also actively collects and disseminates data through several databases, including Human Fertility Database (HFD, collaboration with MPIDR in Rostock) and Cohort Fertility and Education (CFE) database.
