- the kinship networks, networks of informal help and assistance received during critical events;
- child care;
- the life of the couple and the wedding;
- the exit from the immediate family and the life cycle;
- the permanence of young adults in the family;
- the characteristics and opinions on some aspects of daily life;
- the working careers, job search, job interruptions, social mobility and intentions for the future.
