Description:
This timely repon is the latest published under the Government's Families Research Programme, which I initiated in 1999 to assist in the funding of research projects which have the ability to inform the future development of aspects of public policy which relate to families and family services. Recent decades have seen a number of changes in the patterns of family formation in Ireland. Principal among these changes has been the increase in non-marital childbearing and cohabitation, the fannation of new family types through marriage breakdown, and the decline in family size. However, while individual topics have received some attention there has been linle systematic research on general patterns of family formation in Ireland and their evolution. Dermot Ahern. T.D.
