- The 12th family barometer shows that young people attach more importance to travelling or studying than to starting a family.
A study carried out by GAD3 for The Family Watch reveals that the uncertainty generated by the economic crisis is causing 80% of those surveyed to think that it is more difficult to start a family than in previous generations.
Along the same lines, the priorities of young people are travel, culture, studies and professional growth. And in last place is the decision to have children. Although it is not at the top of the list, it is worth noting that the number of people under the age of 45 who want to start a family has increased to 62%. There is also the perception that the family is well valued socially and occupationally, even increasing by 6 points compared to the previous year (from 51 to 57%).
