The situation of families in France
The statistics are formal: the family is popular in France! Since the beginning of the third millennium, marriages and births have been steadily increasing. With 778,900 births in 2000 and 774,800 in 2001 (source: INSEE), the figures for the French birthrate remain at a high level. The number of marriages is also increasing, regardless of the increase in the number of PACs.
Governments, non-governmental organizations, educational institutions, religious groups and individuals can help publicize the functions performed by families and their problems, strengths and needs by organizing events on the occasion of the International Day families. This day is also an opportunity to better understand the economic, cultural, social and demographic processes that affect families.
