Foreword
Korea’s fertility rates remain unprecedentedly low and concerns are growing over its rapid population aging. Reversing the ongoing trends of low fertility would more than ever require efforts to increase support for child-rearing, help parents balance family and work, and promote children’s healthy development. To achieve this goal, a better understanding of Korea’s situations and lessons from advanced countries is a must. From 2006 on, the OECD family data has allowed comparisons across different countries, contributing to research in family policy. It is important that, in its effort to improve its policies on family, women and children, Korea develop statistics in alignment with international standards such as OECD’s. Developing a database of Korean families in a format in line with the OECD standards and making it widely available would certainly galvanize further studies on family policies. This study provides recent information on Korea for indicators in the OECD Family database and helps to share the experience of Korea with other OECD member countries. For the improvement of Korean data the report suggests necessary actions for government. Based on the results of this study it is expected to implement effective family policy facing with the problem of low fertility and aging society. This report was prepared by Yoon-Jeong Shin, Hyunsik Kim and Jihye Yi of the Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs. We are grateful to Sang-Hee Kim a
