Overworked Individuals or Overworked Families? Explaining Trends in Work, Leisure, and Family Time.
Jacobs, Jerry A.; Gerson, Kathleen
Work and Occupations: An International Sociological Journal, v28 n1 p40-63 Feb 2001
Data from the 1970 and 1997 Current Population Survey demonstrate that, more than changes in working hours, the shift from male-breadwinner to dual-earner and single-parent households has increased concern for family-work balance. Research should focus on combined work schedules of family members rather than changes in individual work patterns. (Author/SK)
