About the Presentation

Religions tend to encourage certain choices surrounding home and family life and to admonish others. Likewise, many countries have policies that speak to the acceptability of different family sizes and household configurations, as well as economic realities that define what is possible and optimal. This project is the first to examine how household size and type (extended family, single parent, etc.) vary by religion in 136 countries.
