Měření struktury rodiny původu ve stratifikačním výzkumu: současná praxe a žádoucí postupy
MEASURING THE STRUCTURE OF THE FAMILY OF ORIGIN IN STRATIFICATION RESEARCH: CURRENT AND BEST PRACTICE
Languages of publication
This article summarizes methodological procedures and data sources that are typically used in investigating the effects of family structure on the life chances of children. This study shows how these tools have developed over time and it is argued that the prevailing practice in Czech surveys is inadequate for stratification research because it does not reflect contemporary population trends; and can lead to seriously biased estimates. We propose new measurement tools that are appropriate for stratification research, and we appeal for their wider use in future surveys.
