  1. Note: Controlled for respondents’ age, educational attainment, activity status, partnership status, and number of children. For those in couple also controlled for partner’s education and activity status. We also control for country of residence and the estimates are adjusted for intra-cluster (i.e., country) correlation. To measure “Father’s role in the family”, we use the statement: “If parents divorce it is better for the child to stay with the mother than with the father”. The attitudes are classified as either “traditional gender attitudes” (‘strongly agree’ and ‘agree’), “intermediate” (‘neither agree nor disagree’) and “egalitarian” (‘disagree’, and ‘strongly disagree’).
