Abstract
The intention of the analysis is to indicate socioeconomic determinants of fertility for Poland. The analysis is made with respect to the labour market structures, living conditions, gender norms and appreciated values. Logistic regression models of first and second birth order were used, based on the 2006-2010 Polish Labour Force Survey data. Despite registered rebound in TFRs, there is no evidence to prove the Hypothesis of Fertility Positive Turn holds for Poland. Incompatibility of paid-work and childcare points the premises of the positive turn have not been fulfi lled yet. Instead, the stability hypothesis seems to have some evidence as models show signifi cant relation of marital status, household status and the labour market situation of the partner to fertility.
