Engagement by fathers in Norway has a positive effect on women having children
In the Nordic countries, it has become common through extensive family policies for both mothers and fathers to be able to take parental leave following the arrival of a new child. Norway, for example, offers parents the chance to take over a year’s worth of leave. As part of this leave, a father’s quota was introduced and this has led to a dramatic increase in the number of fathers taking leave. But what impact does a father’s involvement have on a woman’s fertility decisions? [...]

Previous research has shown that separation – either from marriage or from cohabitation – has negative consequences for individuals’ financial and emotional well-being.

Those who can afford to become homeowners will accumulate further advantage over time whereas those who cannot are likely to be disadvantaged. [...]

The NEET Youth in Finland
Since the onset of the recession in the late 2000s, youth "Not in Education, Employment or Training" (NEET) have received much public attention. Some examples of policymakers’ concerns include the long-term effects of NEET status on educational and labour market outcomes, health problems among NEETs, and the effects of a large NEET population on social cohesion in European societies. However, the statistical indicator NEET covers a multitude of different life situations and the use of the concept has received well-deserved critique for this ambiguity. [...]

These contexts have been rapidly changing and diverging in recent decades. Geographic inequalities in health in the United States and globally have widened; policy environments across U.S. [...]
