Changing Gender Roles and Attitudes to Family Formation in Ireland

One of the prime questions which the present study addressed was whether or not changes in gender role attitudes and behaviour were affecting family formation. Because gender role attitudes and behaviour have been changing so rapidly it was necessary to develop new measures which adequately captured how people view these issues at the present time. With insights from the qualitative study we developed a new set of measures, which were empirically developed using factor analysis. This chapter presents detailed data on these measures including their prevalence in the population and differences among groups, particularly between men and women. In addition, the chapter presents selected data from the qualitative study which illustrate the attitudinal dimensions in people’s own words.
