However all theories require re-interpretation in case of countries in transition like Poland. In our empirical analyses, we rely on data extracted from the first wave of the Polish panel survey called “Late fertility diagnosis” conducted in 2007 on a sample of 1200 women (aged 19, 23, 27 and 31 years) in two big cities in Poland. Both descriptive and logistic regression methods are used as analytical tools. We focus on re-interpretation of theoretical context in the light of results of our analysis.
