This poster focuses on the special responsibilities and living conditions of families and households, using the most recent data from more than 160 countries. It was prepared in collaboration with the Secretariat of the International Year of the Family in observance of the International Year of the Family 1994. The chart shows the size and formation of families and households through the average size of households, the proportion of women-headed households and the mean age of marriage of men and women. It emphasizes the special responsibilities of families and households in the proportions of children, elderly and disabled and displays living conditions of households and families.
