DETREMINANTS AND DIVERSIFICATION OF DIVORCES IN POLAND
The article is focused on processes of marrriages breakdown and social attitudes to divorce in Poland. The main aim of this article was to identify detreminants and diversification of divorces in Poland. It was made an attempt to verify a hipothesis that divorces as well as attitudes toward divorce are variously determined by milieu, economic, demographic, and social factors. The research was carried on with the aid of multivariate statistical analysis and it was based mainly on the data of the Polish Central Statistical Office and two public opinion polls: Polish General Social Survey (PGSS) and International Population Policy Acceptance Survey (IPPAS, PPA2). The results obtained indicated a significant divergence between Poles’ attitudes and their bahaviours. Despite of pro-family declarations and common criticism of divorces, the country experienced a rapid increase of divorce rates. Practical implementation of cluster analysis revealed the intense spatial differentiation of marriage breakdown processes in Poland resulting from different levels of socio-economic modernisation level in the regions.
