    Le travail atypique et la garde d’enfants

    This bulletin examines the relationship between childcare (and its various aspects), the work arrangements of parents, and that of mothers and fathers separately. Two forms of atypical work arrangements are identified: non-standard work hours and atypical employment status. All analyses are based on data from the 2009 Survey on Childcare Use, Needs and Preference of Families and refer to families or children where both parents have (or the single parent has) work as their main occupation.

    Several aspects of childcare are studied: type of childcare (regular or irregular), main and second type of childcare for regular childcare, number of hours of regular childcare, frequency of difficulties encountered in organizing childcare, and preferences for regular childcare.
