Neuch√Ętel, 24.03.2015 (FSO) - Almost two-thirds (63%) of childless women and men aged 20-29 would like to have two children. A quarter (28%) say that ideally, they would like three or more children. Women with a tertiary education are most likely to remain childless (30%). Since the 1990s it has become more acceptable for women with small children to go out to work.
