Time for Work and Work Timing among Married Couples Raising Children with Disabilities

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Using Australian time diary data, this study examined the effects of child disability on couples’ work patterns. Findings showed that while mothers’ labor force participation, work hours, and exact scheduling of hours of paid employment over a 24-hour day were associated with raising children with disabilities, these areas of fathers’ paid work lives were unaffected. Results for control variables, e.g., parental age, personal income, and age groupings of children, confirmed previous findings in the literature on maternal labor supply. This study offers new knowledge on the impact of childhood disability on the organization of work within two-parent families, broadens debate about the work-family dilemma, and promotes inclusion of families raising special needs children into future research on work and families.
