Abstract

People are regularly asked in sample surveys whether they wish to have children in the future. Can we rely on their answers to predict birth rates in the years to come? Why, in some cases, do their wishes not come true? Because they misjudged the direction their life would take? Because unforeseen problems, such as the death of a partner, divorce or unemployment, obliged them to postpone or even abandon their fertility projects? Laurent Toulemon and Maria Rita Testa present the results of the latest French survey on this topic.
Des enquêtes sont menées régulièrement pour savoir si les personnes souhaitent avoir des enfants dans l’avenir. Peut-on se fier à leurs réponses pour prévoir les naissances de demain ? Si leurs désirs ne se réalisent pas, d’où cela vient-il ? Des difficultés à anticiper l’avenir ? Des imprévus de la vie - décès du conjoint, divorce, chômage - qui empêchent la réalisation des projets ou les repoussent à plus tard ? Laurent Toulemon et Maria Rita Testa nous livrent les résultats de la dernière enquête menée en France sur le sujet.
