Mothers 'happier' working

13th December 2007

A study by the Institute for Social and Economic Research has suggested that working women with children are significantly happier than stay-at-home mothers regardless of how many hours they work.

The Job Satisfaction and Family Happiness survey also found that job satisfaction for women with partners is greater when they work part-time and it says lowering the cost of child care would enable more women to work part-time, increasing their overall satisfaction. However, for men, it discovered that life satisfaction depends on having a full-time job.
