Measuring Developmental Idealism in Family Life (Albania)

Arjan Gjonca, P.I.

This dataset contains a complete fertility history, and values and norms from women ages 15-64 in 1200 households, plus developmental idealism measures from both women and men living in those same households. The sample is a subset of a 5000 household UNICEF survey; household level information, individual household member information, and child-specific measures were also collected and are available for each respondent interviewed in the sample subset.
