The Office for National Statistics (ONS) have published research showing that there has been an increase in working mothers in England (74%). This is compared to 1996 where 63% of mothers with dependent children were in work.
Some of the explanations for this increase include more shared parental responsibility, more flexible working and an increase in the availability of childcare.
This research could be used within a number of units for A-Level Sociology, including: Families and Households, Research Methods, Work, Poverty and Welfare.
