Dataset: LBG200501: Sexuality and Gender

Abstract

On topics of women’s and men’s sexual and reproductive health there are only few empirical data in Austria. This study takes an inventory of the existing data and has the aim of creating an empirical data stock on selected topics of sexual and reproductive health. The main topics are relationships, sexual behaviour, contraception and the desire to have children.

The central question of this study is whether there are gender-specific differences concerning the different aspects of sexual and reproductive health, especially the aspects on the topics relationships, sexuality, attitude towards contraception and the desire to have children. Also different phases of life as well as age groups, the level of education and regional aspects were taken into account.

- desire to have children, voluntary and unwanted childlessness (desired and actual number of children; reason if there is no (further) desire to have children; frequency of unfulfilled desire to have children)
- pregnancy and birth (frequency of pregnancies, pregnancy termination, miscarriage and premature birth; frequency of postnatal depression)
- characteristics of sexual behaviour (number of partners; use of condoms with new partners; number of affairs; frequency and satisfaction with the sexual intercourse; frequency of sexual problems)
