Work Choices of Mothers in Families with Children with Disabilities.
Porterfield, Shirley L.
Journal of Marriage and Family, v64 n4 p972-81 Nov 2002
The choice of women with children to work full time, part time, or not at all was estimated as a function of individual and family characteristics, including the number and ages of children with disabilities. The presence of young children, with or without disabilities, has a significant negative influence on the work choice of both single and married mothers. (Contains 25 references and 3 tables.) (GCP)
