2019 NSECE snapshot: Parent work schedules in households with young children


This research snapshot describes characteristics of households with young children, including the work schedules of parents during a reference week in 2019. We also compare statistically significant differences in findings between parental work schedules in 2012 and 2019. We describe how work schedules differ for households of different income levels; between one-parent and two-parent families; and in households where neither, one, or both parents work. One group of particular focus is ‘fully-employed’ households; these are households where all parents work –a one-parent/one-working-parent household or a two-parent/two-working-parents household.
