U.S. – New research suggests that there has been an increase in the number of mothers who stay at home with their children full-time. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the report released by the Pew Research Center Tuesday suggests that several factors may explain the increase including a higher number of women being unable to find work and the rising costs of childcare.
According to the study findings, the percentage of mothers who do not work outside of the home was 29 percent in 2012, which is a jump from being 23 percent at the turn of the century. This includes moms who are single, married, students, disabled, or unemployed.
The largest percentage of at-home mothers was stated to be those who had working husbands. This group represented an estimated two thirds of the 10.4 million.
U.S. Census and other government data was used for the study.
