Korean society over the last half a century saw rapid changes in its demographic structure. Of late, in particular, the country has moved into an age of low fertility. Korea's fertility rates have been in decline ever since the industrialization of the 1960's, now bringing the population aging to the fore of social concerns.
The rapid decline in fertility rates is thought to have been occasioned by changes in socioeconomic environments involving increasing industrialization and urbanization, social values regarding marriage and having children, increases in women's labor market participation, and insufficient maternity protection mechanism. In this context, this study aims to provide family policy options by analyzing changes that took place in social values and in family structure, cycle, and functions and also by making a forecast of changes that may occur in the future.
