ABOUT THIS RELEASE
Provides information on persons who were in the labour force and who also had the responsibility for the care of children under twelve years of age. Includes information about the arrangements they made to have their children cared for while they themselves were at work (including arrangements for after-school and school holiday care).
In addition, information was sought as to the numbers of persons who would have entered the labour force had suitable child care facilities been available. The inquiry was directed mainly to working mothers, but males with the sole responsibility for children were also included.
