Changing rhythms of American family life by Suzanne M Bianchi( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using time-diary data from surveys of American parents over the last four decades, Changing Rhythms of American Family Life finds that, despite increased workloads outside of the home, mothers today spend at least as much time interacting with their children as mothers did decades ago - and perhaps even more. Unexpectedly, the authors find the increase in mothers' time at work has not resulted in an overall decline in sleep or leisure time. Rather, mothers have made time for both work and family by sacrificing time spent doing housework and by increased "multi-tasking.""--Jacket

Work, family, health, and well-being by Suzanne M Bianchi( )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 1,157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume considers how today's families cope with the competing demands of work and home life and how these demands directly and indirectly affect their health and well-being. Thirty-three contributions address such topics as employer policies to support work and families; the effects of marriage, divorce, and widowhood on women's health; and the child-care needs of low-income parents. The papers were originally presented at a 2003 conference held in Washington, D.C. under the auspices of the National Institutes of Health

Balancing act : motherhood, marriage, and employment among American women by Daphne Spain( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Balancing Act draws upon multiple census and survey sources to detail the shifting conditions under which women balance their roles as mothers, wives, and breadwinners. The authors show how women have made great strides in education, where female college enrollment now exceeds that of males, and in the workplace, where women now enter a wider variety of occupations and stay on the job longer than previous generations, even after becoming wives and mothers. Despite these gains, however, many American women are struggling to make ends meet. Lower-paying service positions remain predominantly female and, although the salary gap between men and women has shrunk, women are still paid less for similar work. Also, as women continue to establish a greater presence outside the home, many have delayed marriage and motherhood. Marked jumps in divorce and out-of-wedlock childbirth have given rise to increasing numbers of female-headed households. Balancing Act focuses on how American women juggle the simultaneous demands of caregiving and wage earning and compares the patterns of their lives with those of women in other countries. The United States is the only industrialized nation without policies to support working mothers; most telling is the absence of subsidized child-care services. As a consequence, the risk of poverty is the single greatest danger facing American mothers, with African American women the most adversely affected

Non-response in the American Time Use Survey : who Is missing from the data and how much does it matter? by Katharine G Abraham( )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines non-response in a large government survey. The response rate for the American Time Use Survey (ATUS) has been below 60 percent for the first two years of its existence, raising questions about whether the results can be generalized to the target population. The paper begins with an analysis of the types of non-response encountered in the ATUS. We find that non-contact accounts for roughly 60 percent of ATUS non-response, with refusals accounting for roughly 40 percent. Next, we examine two hypotheses about the causes of this non-response. We find little support for the hypothesis that busy people are less likely to respond to the ATUS, but considerable support for the hypothesis that people who are weakly integrated into their communities are less likely to respond, mostly because they are less likely to be contacted. Finally, we compare aggregate estimates of time use calculated using the ATUS base weights without any adjustment for non-response to estimates calculated using the ATUS final weights with a non-response adjustment and to estimates calculated using weights that incorporate our own non-response adjustments based on a propensity model. While there are some modest differences, the three sets of estimates are broadly similar. The paper ends with a discussion of survey design features, their effect on the types and level of non-response, and the tradeoffs associated with different design choices
America's children : mixed prospects by Suzanne M Bianchi( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data in this population bulletin indicate that in comparison with children of previous generations, today's youngsters are apt to have fewer siblings, and more likely to come from a broken home, have a working mother, and pass time as a latchkey kid. More children are in child care than in the past, and there has been a significant move toward center-based care. Preschoolers, particularly those from relatively well-off families, are increasingly enrolled in prekindergarten. Declining family size and recent American prosperity have created material well-being for most of today's children. But the development of an underclass has also increased the number of children trapped in poverty. Stagnant wages of the working poor and the growing number of mother-only households have exacerbated income inequality among children. The decline in educational achievement scores of the 1970s has ended, and average school performance has improved in the 1980s. An increased number of students, especially blacks, completed high school in the 1980s. The physical health of the average American child has improved dramatically since 1960. But the picture is marred by the problematic future of the children of the underclass and the uncertain psychological impact of America's transformed family life. (RH)

Family Interaction, Social Capital, and Trends in Time Use (FISCT), 1998-1999 : [United States] by John P Robinson( )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For this project, data from 24-hour time diaries probing several indicators of social capital and life quality were gathered to update prior time series on how Americans spend time. Data were collected to be consistent with time-diary collections prepared in 1965, 1975, and 1985 (see ICPSR 7254, 7580, and 9875) to allow cross-time comparisons. The survey was conducted by the Survey Research Center at the University of Maryland between March 1998 and December 1999 (effectively covering each season of the year and each day of the week) with a representative sample of 1,151 respondents aged 18 and older. Using established time-diary procedures with Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI), respondents were asked to complete "yesterday" time diaries detailing their primary activities from midnight to midnight of the previous day, their secondary activities (e.g., activities that occurred simultaneously with the primary activities), and when, with whom, and where they engaged in the activities. The project focus included the following substantive and methodological areas: (1) time spent in social interaction, particularly parental time with children, (2) measurement problems in time estimates, (3) activity and social interaction patterns of elderly Americans, and (4) time spent on the Internet and effects on social isolation and other media usage. In addition to the estimates of time use obtained from the time diaries, the project elicited information on (1) marital and parental status, education and employment status of the respondent and spouse (if married), age, race/ethnicity, and family income, (2) weekly and previous-day recall estimates of time spent on paid employment, housework, religious activities, and television viewing, (3) feelings of time pressure, and (4) use of the Internet, e-mail, and home computers ...

National Survey of Parents, 2000-2001 by Suzanne M Bianchi( )

2 editions published in 2005 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Survey of Parents, 2000-2001 was designed to collect data on the activity patterns of American parents and on how they divide their time among work, household tasks, child care, and leisure activities. Information on feelings about various parenting activities was also ascertained. Using established time-diary procedures with Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI), respondents were asked to complete "yesterday" time diaries. These diaries detailed respondents' primary activities from midnight to midnight of the previous day, their secondary activities (e.g., activities that occurred simultaneously with the primary activities), and when, with whom, and where they engaged in the activities. In addition to estimates of time use, the project elicited information on (1) age, race/ethnicity, family income, marital status, education, and employment status of the respondent and spouse (if married), (2) weekly estimates of time spent in different activities with children, (3) feelings of time pressure, and (4) enjoyment of certain parenting activities. There are two different data files available. Part 1, Main Data, contains 1,200 respondent records that include respondent and household characteristics, questions about feelings and time pressure, and survey weights. This file also contains aggregated measures of minutes per day in 99 detailed primary time activities, time spent in 13 locations, and time spent with different categories of people. The Main Data Codebook documents the variables contained in Part 1. Part 2, Time Diary Data, contains 24,814 activity records collected in the time diary. Each primary activity record also contains information on any simultaneous secondary activity, the location code for where the primary activity took place, and the "with whom" code for each primary activity. The Time Diary Codebook and Time Diary Questionnaire d ... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR04247
