Folk, Karen Fox; Beller, Andrea H.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n1 p146-57 Feb 1993
Examined employment and child care arrangement among mothers of preschool children from National Survey of Families and Households. Results suggest unique contribution of factors affecting choice of part-time employment combined with care by parent or relative. Mothers employed part-time and using nonmarket care were more likely white, married, Catholic, and in service or sales occupation with variable schedule. (Author/NB)
