Socioeconomic Portrait of Father of Many Children in Modern Russia
Economics
(Bachelor’s programme)
2019
Over the past decades, the birth rate in Russia, as in other countries of Eastern Europe and the post-Soviet space, has undergone dynamic changes. This study is aimed at describing the socio-economic portrait of a large father in modern Russia. The goal is to identify the socio-economic characteristics of fathers of many children among Russian men. After reviewing previous studies, suitable independent variables were selected. A model for describing large families will be evaluated using regression analysis. It is expected that significant socioeconomic determinants for model interpretation will be identified. The main part of this article has the following structure: the introduction contains the objectives of the study; in the theoretical part, the available literature on this issue is reviewed, possible independent variables and a possible range of approaches to the analysis of male fertility rates are described; regression analysis reveals significant variables when a father transitions to the status of having many children; cluster analysis describes the main socio-economic characteristics of groups of large families; in conclusion, the results of hypothesis testing are discussed.
