Abstract (italian or english)
From 1961 to 2011 in Italy the average number of individuals per household decreased from 3.6 to 2.4, and the proportion of household with 6 members or more dropped from 14.4% to 1.4%. Large families (4-plus children) are often associated with poverty, but, given their rarity, it is extremely difficult to study them. They are basically unknown, especially in contexts of very low fertility. We aim to characterize large families (with 4-plus children) and to highlight what distinguishes them from families with fewer children, for both native and non-native population.
