Claartje Mulder has made significant contributions to the fields of geography, demography and family sociology. She was one of the first researchers to use the concept of the life course to study how people take decisions about work, divorce, family and domicile. Mulder found evidence that children who live near their parents are less likely to move farther away than children who already do live a long way off.
