White-Means, Shelley I.; Thornton, Michael C.
Gerontologist, v30 n6 p769-75 Dec 1990
Examined two decisions of employed informal caregivers, allocation of time to care production and to the labor market. Found that caregiving production factors, financial resources, and personal characteristics of the informal care providers influenced caregiving hours and labor market decisions. German-, Irish-, English-, and African-Americans differed significantly in their decision to provide informal care. (Author/NB)
