New ONS data on time use and parenting in lockdown (22 July 2020)
Date Posted: Wednesday 22nd July 2020
We have analysed the data released by the Office for National Statistics on parenting in lockdown during Coronavirus and the effects on work-life balance.
What the data shows:
- Parents spent more time on childcare during lockdown
- Type of childcare changed – more ‘developmental’ childcare delivered
- Fathers doing more of the ‘enjoyable’ childcare
- Mothers still doing the majority of childcare – especially for younger children
