Working Hours and the Family
Working preferences/economic incentives/childcare and divorce/retirement and time-use
Written by: Jens Bonke
There is growing recognition that the family plays a major role in determining how much people want to work, how much they actually work, how much child care – and of what type – they
provide for their families, how well their children cope, and the age at which they choose to retire from the labour market.
Taking the family as its key focus, this book elucidates issues such as these on the basis of data from the Rockwool Foundation Research Unit’s survey of time use and consumption and from
other time use studies. In this way, the book is able to make a nuanced contribution to our understanding of the significance of the family for the economy and wellbeing of society.
