In 2006, 39% of business operators indicated they had spent time caring for a child or children (without being paid). This included persons who were caring for their own child or children, another person's child or children, or a combination of both. This can include business operators who were in an extended family situation and/or were caring for a child or children on an ad hoc basis. The remaining 61% of business operators did not care for a child.

There was a higher proportion of females who indicated they were operating businesses and also caring for a child and/or children (47%) compared to males (36%).
