This project will examine the Dynamics of Change in Czech Society using a household panel survey research design. Applying insights from sociology, economics and politics this study will examine five themes: Family life, time use and income management; Education and the labour market; Social stratification; Housing choices and inequalities; and Political participation and civil society. Within the framework of a Household Panel Survey, theories and models of many facets of social change will be examined using individuals’ attitudes, preferences and behaviour within the context of the household. Time use data and repeated surveys of children will provide evidence of how daily life is spent and the process of socialisation where the next generation of citizens is prepared for participation in Czech society. Advanced statistical methods will be used to test explanatory models. This project will both chart the process of social change and contribute to the training of the next generation of Czech social scientists.
Aims of the project:
This project will examine the process of change in contemporary Czech society by carrying out four waves of a household panel survey. The core themes of the research are family life, education and the labour market, social stratification, housing choices and inequalities and political participation.

This paper uses the national EU-SILC 2013 data to analyse the impact of the distribution of personal income between partners on reported financial well-being of couples in the Czech Republic. It focuses on partners in two life stages: couples raising children and couples with empty nests. On average, women contribute substantially less to the household budget than men and their financial satisfaction is slightly lower.

The paper explores the link between employment and subjective well-being among mothers with small children. Using a pooled sample of the ESS 2004–2014 data from 30 European countries. Analyzing multiple measures of subjective well-being, the paper shows that homemakers are happier than full-time workers. There were no significant differences between homemakers and part-time workers.
The results of research on domestic labour consistently show that women are responsible for more housework tasks than men. At the same time, there is growing public awareness of gender role equality. However, there is little evidence on whether there has been any change in the perception of fairness in the division of housework and whether this view differs in different families.
