Familydemic Survey


The major element of the project is the Familydemic Survey, an innovative online survey that is  carried out simultaneously in six countries: Canada, Germany, Italy, Poland, Sweden and the US.


The survey is carried out in at least one wave in all participating countries. This (first) wave will been carried out in June 2021. In some countries there will be a second wave carried out in June 2022.


The survey is carried out online on representative (according to crucial socio-demographic characteristics) national samples of at least 2000 respondents aged 20-59 and living with a child up to 11 years old. In Poland and in Italy much larger samples are used (incorporating childless people and those living with older kids).
