Scribes record all information from the words of the respondents, without presenting supporting documents.
Recently published statistics on the number of married couples in the Irkutsk region. Surprisingly, it turned out that we have fewer married men than married women. How can this be?
As the head of Irkutskstat, Irina Ivanova, explained, the whole point is in the different perceptions of men and women of their status.
“Indeed, according to the 2010 census, there were 553.3 thousand married men in the Irkutsk region, and there were 1.5 thousand more married women. The fact is that scribes record all information from the words of the respondents, without presenting supporting documents. The reason, apparently, is the difference between male and female perceptions: a man, being in a civil marriage (and such marriages, without registration - every fifth!), Sometimes feels free, and his “half” considers himself married, not without reason,”she clarified specialist.
Other features concerning the stronger sex are also interesting. For example, how much time does the average man in the Irkutsk region spend on household chores? It turns out that even on weekends, men spend no more than 1-3 minutes on washing and ironing. And they spend a whole hour buying groceries and other goods, as well as cleaning, on Saturdays and Sundays. Watching TV on weekdays "eats up" almost an hour and a half of free time, and reading is given only 11 minutes.
44% of the men surveyed have no intention of having children. At the same time, 3125 single fathers live in Priangarye, seven of them have five or more children.
