The Economic Costs and Rewards of Two-Earner, Two-Parent Families.
Hanson, Sandra L.; Ooms, Theodora
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v53 n3 p622-34 Aug 1991
Used data from national Consumer Expenditure Survey to examine economic costs and rewards experienced by two-parent families with an employed wife/mother. Findings showed that substantial work-related costs were incurred in dual-earner families. Dual-earners did enjoy economic advantages in income and home ownership. Lower- and middle-income families experienced more benefits and fewer costs than did upper-income families. (Author/ABL)
