CopaGloba – Learning to coparent: A longitudinal data on construction of coparenting in transition to parenthood (individual interview data of parents)


The CopaGloba project examined the development of coparenthood during the transition to parenthood among new parents and how coparenthood was shaped by family and labour market policies, family services and prevailing cultural expectations. Coparenting was studied from the perspectives of family, community and culture/wider society. The individual interview data of parents (late pregnancy N=92; and child 1,5 years N=91) were gathered in the study. The data collection started on the April 1, 2020 and finished May 31, 2022. In addition to individual interviews of parents, the following data sets were collected: a) mobile diary data of parents, b) survey data of parents, c) focus group interview data of parents in online game-based parental group, and d) focus group interview data of professionals in family centers. The individual interviews with parents from Japan and Portugal were also conducted but this research data set includes only the Finnish data. The longitudinal study funded by the Academy of Finland was carried out during 2019–2023. The study was conducted by the consortium of the University of Jyväskylä and JAMK University of Applied Sciences in close collaboration with the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) and international collaborators.
