A tale of two fathers : more are active, but more are absent /

by Livingston, Gretchen | PEW Research Center | Parker, Kim.

Publisher: Washington, DC PEW Research Center 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011Summary: The role of fathers in the modern American family is changing in important and countervailing ways. Fathers who live with their children have become more intensely involved in their lives, spending more time with them and taking part in a greater variety of activities. However, the share of fathers who are residing with their children has fallen significantly in the past half century. In 1960, only 11% of children in the U.S. lived apart from their fathers. By 2010, that share had risen to 27%. The share of minor children living apart from their mothers increased only modestly, from 4% in 1960 to 8% in 2010.According to a new Pew Research Center analysis of the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG), more than one-in-four fathers with children 18 or younger now live apart from their children -with 11% living apart from some of their children and 16% living apart from all of their children.Availability: (1)

Intra-household time allocation : gender differences in caring for children /

by Garc a-Mainar, Inmaculada | Institute for the Study of Labor | Molina, Jos Alberto | Montuenga, V ctor M.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This paper analyses the intra-household allocation of time to show gender differences in childcare. In the framework of a general efficiency approach, hours spent on childcare by each parent are regressed against individual and household characteristics, for five samples (Denmark, France, Germany, Italy and Spain), with data being drawn from the European Community Household Panel-ECHP (1994-2001). Empirical results show a clear inequality in childcare between fathers and mothers, with this being more evident in Mediterranean countries. Panel data estimates reveal that, in general, caring tasks are mainly influenced by the presence of young children in the household, by the total non-labor income, and by the ratio of mothers' non-labor income to family's non-labor income, with this latter variable exhibiting a different behavior across genders and across countries.Availability: (1)
