Headline: Parenthood not outdated despite increasingly later family formation

WIESBADEN – Men and women in Germany tend to have children at increasingly later ages. However, this does not mean that there is a general downward trend in family formation. Based on a comparison of aggregated birth cohorts, the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) reports that at the beginning of their forties most women still live in families as mothers. At 75%, the share of 40-year-old women of the aggregated 1970 – 1974 birth cohorts living in families as mothers is similarly high as some 15 years earlier. Then the percentage had been 78% (birth cohorts of 1955 – 1959). For further information:Tim Hochgürtel,tel: +49 (0) 611 / 75 42 17,contact form
