Resumé

Allan Westerling (Center For Childhood, Youth and Family Life Research, Roskilde University), Lars Dencik (Center For Childhood, Youth and Family Life Research, Roskilde University), Hans H.K. Sønderstrup-Andersen (Center For Childhood, Youth and Family Life Research, Roskilde University)

The first paper is an outline of the background for the study and it’s methodological and theoretical framework.

The study, Family Forms and Cohabitation in the Modern Welfare State (FAMOSTAT), was originally funded by the National Danish Research Council for the Human Sciences.

Its focus is on the transformations of family life as a consequence of societal modernization in Denmark.

The project was informed by Dencik’s (1996) social psychological perspective on family life, arguing that the impact of modernization should be studied through empirical investigations of everyday family life. Following Asplund’s (1983) notion of the mutual relationships between individuality and communality represented by the slash in the individual/social signifier, the project set out to study how communality and individuality are lived in different households.

Based on a randomized sample (n=1600) of people born in 1968, living in Denmark in 2003, a statistical representative number were included in the panel (n=989). The panel has participated in two waves of data collection. One in 2003, collected via Computer Assisted Telephone Interviews, and one in 2014, based on a web-based survey (n=457). The original questionnaire (IFUSOFF) was adopted to the web-format (IFUSOFF II), adding more questions on the work-life/family-life balance.
