Abstract: If young professionals start their career with a temporary contract, this can have far-reaching implications, as uncertain economic relations make it harder to plan for the future both professionally and in terms of starting a family. Analyses based on data from the socio-economic panel from 1996 to 2012 show a negative relationship between temporary employment and starting a family.
