Understanding 21st century relationships

25 November 2012

Reliable and accessible data is the cornerstone of successful policy development and culture change. To mark OnePlusOne’s 40th year we have collected what is known about relationships across a range of dimensions.

This exciting work has resulted in a unique and highly accessible resource, Understanding 21st century relationships: A compendium of key data. Released as individual chapters that build into a user friendly compendium, each chapter looks beyond the statistics to in-depth studies of the experiences of couples and families, and explores new ways in which relationships can be supported in the future.

Chapter 1: Partnership Formation and Dissolution

Chapter 2: Household Composition and Families

Chapter 3: Sex, Fertility and Parenthood
