The British survey was funded within the ESRC Future of Work Research Programme and was carried out by the Office of National Statistics (ONS).

Catherine Hakim presents a study of ideal models of the family and family roles, work orientations, patriarchal values, and lifestyle preferences, showing how these impact on womens marital histories, fertility, employment patterns, occupational segregation, and labour mobility, but not on mens labour market participation. Lifestyle preferences and work orientations have a strong impact on womens activities, and especially on married womens employment choices, but patriarchal values (which are most commonly studied by social attitude surveys) have virtually no impact on behaviour.

The analyses demonstrate that political and religious values have virtually no connection with orientations to employment and family roles. The book also covers educational homogamy, housing classes and contrasts between ethnic minority groups in core values and labour market participation.
