Abstract

"In order to better understand some of the key issues for all mothers in combining paid work and parenting DWP and the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) developed in 2006 a series of questions for use on the Families and Children Study (FACS)... The findings presented in this working paper refer to the FACS data for lone mothers only and it is the first time that the Choices and Constraints set has been analysed longitudinally. One reason for conducting this analysis was to contribute to the wider evidence on lone mothers’ decisions regarding employment. However, given that this question set will be used in future research projects, including the LPO evaluation, the analysis was also commissioned to inform how longitudinal data emerging from LPO might best be explored. For this reason this working paper also contains technical detail describing the analysis process itself." - Page 1.
