International Nanny Association (INA) Survey: Results and Observations.
Olsen, Glenn W.; And Others
This document reports the findings of a survey of 145 members of the International Nanny Association (INA). Survey results showed that 82.8 percent of respondents attended college, while 21.4 percent received bachelor's or master's degrees. Many of the nannies had taken classes or training in child care. Most nannies found their job placement through an agency. Most respondents describe many responsibilities in addition to child care, including cooking for children, doing laundry, running errands, and grocery shopping. Other results reported included salary and benefits, number and age of children served, working hours, fringe benefits, length of employment, and level of job satisfaction. The INA itself was a concern of many nannies, with 38.6 percent saying that the INA had not improved their service in the past year; a significant number were not satisfied with the level of communication between INA and nannies. Conflicts between parental and nanny discipline and authority, along with long work hours, were consistently rated as the most troubling and difficult aspects of the job. The report avoids analytic or inferential analysis, providing the responses and data and saving analysis for a future publication. (BGC)
