Abstract

The AA. use census mapping to describe regional and local differences in partnering and parenting within Britain. They develop an index of the motherhood employment effect to indicate different geographical levels of adherence to the traditional family, and they use a family conventionality index to describe geographical differences in the social evaluation of marriage. The geography of family formations thus discribed does not follow the better known north-south or urban-rural geographies of economic performance and prosperity. They use the example of Lancashire and Yorkshire to explore further the socio-economic associations of this family geography
