The Modern British Family

The Centre for the Modern Family is a new think tank which aims to investigate what constitutes a 'family' in Britain today. Today sees the publication of its first report Family: Helping to Understand the Modern British Family, which concludes that the traditional idea of 'married with 2.4 children' is no longer the norm. The report also identifies ten new family types based upon age, the individuals involved and their attitudes.

The full text of the report is available from this link, though further supplementary information is also available from the Centre's website.
