Abstracts
The primary purpose of this paper is analyzing the mutual
connection between the sector of women’s employment and
fertility rate in Croatia. The survey was conducted both
quantitatively and qualitatively. The quantitative survey is
based on a proportional quota sample of 1309 employed
women, aged 20-39. The qualitative survey was conducted
by using the method of in-depth interview on a sample of 20
participants. Prior to our analysis a theoretical and
quantitative overview of the latest European surveys
concerning this issue was given. On the manifest level, no
(statistically) significant differences in fertility motivation (sum
of achieved and intended fertility) were found among the
surveyed sectors. However, it has been proven that the sector
of employment is an important reason for postponing
pregnancy, especially in the commercial sector. The public
sector (health and education) provides a certain stability and
this is where we find the lowest proportion of women who do
not want children, while in the private sector (especially in
financial mediation) the proportion of women who do not
want children is considerably higher. The paper has also
shown a connection between atypical work hours, specifically
overtime work, and a decrease in fertility, while a significant
correlation between fertility and work during weekends has
not been established.

Keywords
