Parental Choice of Self-Care for School-Age Children.
Cain, Virginia S.; Hofferth, Sandra L.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v51 n1 p65-77 Feb 1989
Created national estimates from 1984 Current Population Survey of number of school-age children in self-care at some time of day. Results suggest self-care most likely used by middle- to upper-income White mothers in suburban or rural areas, with no other adult in household, for older children, and for only for short time each day.
