AbstractThe Australian Family Formation Project (AFFP) is the second wave of a national longitudinal study of family formation. The aim is to identify those factors which influence family formation and dissolution patterns, and the variations in the timing and sequence of family formation stages. Variables include attitudes to intimate relationships, children, parenthood, work and family, and households. The study also includes details on childhood family, religion, income and working conditions. The data are stored at ADA as two datasets. This one consists of verbatim responses to open-ended questions. The companion data set, held at ADA under the same title (Study no 01045-p2) contains the main data for each individual.
