The future of families to 2030: an overview of projections, policy challenges and policy options
Abstract:This chapter provides an introduction and overview of the main findings of the project on the "Future of Families to 2030". It explores probable future changes in family and household structures in OECD member countries; identifies what appear to be the main forces shaping the family landscape between now and 2030; draws on projections and scenarios to discuss the longer term challenges for policy arising from those expected changes; and based on the three subsequent thematic chapters, suggests policy options for managing the challenges on a sustainable basis.
