To identify the attitudes towards maternal employment of undergraduates reared in single-parent families compared to those in dual-parent households, 717 undergraduates were surveyed. Subjects were divided into two groups based on number of household parents. Between group t-tests revealed a significant effect on the Beliefs about the Consequences of Maternal Employment subscale; students reared by single parents perceived greater benefits of maternal employment than those raised in two-parent households. Subjects from single-parent backgrounds were more likely than those with two parents to blame problems with their quality of life on their mother's work status. T-tests revealed that students raised in integral families were more approving of their fathers than students reared in single-parent households. (Contains 75 references and 4 tables.) (Author/GCP)
