Introduction. The aim of the study was to evaluate
the frequency and severity of a sense of uncertainty concerning
important determinants of human existence in
selected groups of young women in Poland and the Czech
Republic, when they found themselves to be at the right
age to have children. Material and methods. Data were
obtained based on a self developed questionnaire. The
study involved 42 nursing students in the second year of
studies in Poland and 51 nursing students in the Czech
Republic. The average age in these two groups was 21.7
and 22.8 years respectively The results were analyzed statistically
using the chi-square test. Results. Polish young
women in comparison to Czech women are more often
afraid of considerable nuisance problems with future
work, unsatisfactory relationships with future partners,
and a sense of forthcoming impending dangers. Conclusions.
The results suggest considerable uncertainty with
regard to important spheres of human existence among
young people. In the light of similar observations made
by authors from countries of different economic standard,
the insecurity is only one affecting factor among others.
The results indicate the advisability of undertaking research
on different approved models of the family.

Wstęp. Celem pracy była ocena częstości i nasilenia
poczucia niepewności dotyczącej ważnych uwarunkowań
egzystencjalnych w wybranych grupach młodych kobiet
w Polsce i Czechach, które są w wieku poprzedzającym
podjęciem decyzji o posiadaniu dzieci. Materiał i metody.
Dane uzyskano poprzez badanie sondażowe przy pomocy
własnego kwestionariusza ankietowego. Badaniu poddano
42 studentki pielęgniarstwa II roku studiów w Polsce i 51
studentek pielęgniarstwa w Czechach. Średni wiek w tych
dwóch grupach wynosił odpowiednio 21,7 i 22,8 lat. Wyniki
poddano opracowaniu statystycznemu, przy użyciu
testu chi-kwadrat. Wyniki. Młode kobiety żyjące w Polsce
znamiennie częściej niż w Czechach obawiają się znacznych
uciążliwości w przyszłej pracy, niesatysfakcjonującej
relacji z przyszłym partnerem oraz częściej mają poczucie
grożących w przyszłości niebezpieczeństw. Wnioski. Uzyskane
wyniki przemawiają za częstym istnieniem wśród
młodych ludzi znacznego poczucia niepewności w zakresie
ważnych sfer egzystencjalnych. W świetle analogicznych
spostrzeżeń autorów, pochodzących z krajów o różnej zasobności,
poczucie niepewności ekonomicznej jest jedynie
jednym z czynników oddziaływujących. Wyniki wskazują
na celowość podjęcia badań nad różnymi akceptowanymi
modelami rodziny.
