Parent work schedules in households with young children

Share
Description:

This research snapshot describes work schedules of parents of young children during a reference week in 2012. 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-worker household or a two-parent/two-worker household. (author abstract)
