ABSTRACT. The paper deals with economic factors of marriage and cohabitation of women and men in European countries. Binary logistic regression on the basis of the sixth round of international comparison project European Social Survey (ESS6) held in 2012–2013 was used. An analysis has shown that the influnce of economic factors of marriage and cohabitation is inherent, to a higher extent, in population of developed countries of Northern Europe. Great parts of dispersion of the influence of economic factors are more frequently traced among women than among men. The marriage and cohabitation of men in general is more successively determined by the level of total income. Instead, only cohabitation of men is determined more sequentially by availability of paid work. As in case with men, marriage and cohabitation of women is more determined by the level of total income. At the same time the cohabitation of women in some countries is determined by availability of paid work, in others – by a decrease of total income.
