Agreement between self-reported use of in vitro fertilisation or ovulation induction, and medical insurance claims in Australian women aged 28-36 years
Successfully managing work and family is a major issue for most Australians that impacts strongly on employed women, who continue to also undertake most of the domestic tasks. As one way to balance paid work and family, many Australian women shift to part-time hours or casual employment after having children. This project aims to investigate the work-family trajectories of a new generation of Australian women. . We will also investigate who is coping well during this transition, and the extent to which women’s different work-family pathways reflect their earlier-stated aspirations.
