Balancing work with school and training while raising young children: A national portrait of young parents, their schedules, and children's care arrangements
This study is motivated by existing research on the adverse impacts of early childbearing and observed trends in young parents (those ages 16 to 24) balancing work with education or training. Using data from the National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE), a set of nationally representative surveys that provide a portrait of the child care experiences of US households, we aimed to address the following research questions: 1. How many children growing up in the US have young parents who are balancing work with education or training? 2. What are the characteristics of these children and their families, and how do they compare with children with young parents who are only working or only in education or training? 3. What are the most common child care arrangements for children with young parents balancing work with education or training, and how do they compare with the care arrangements of other children?
