More U.S. moms are staying at home with kids: study
More American mothers are staying at home with their children, a shift that reflects rising immigration and the fact many women are unable to find jobs after a sluggish period for the U.S. economy, a Pew analysis released on Tuesday showed. Twenty-nine percent of U.S. mothers, or about 10.4 million women, stayed at home in 2012. The category of stay-at-home mothers with children under 18 includes women who are at home to care for their families and mothers who cannot find work, are disabled or in school, the Pew Research Center analysis of Census Bureau data said. Six percent of stay-at-home mothers, or about 634,000 people, said they were home with their children in 2012 because they could not find a job.
