Original title: Moeders, werk en kinderopvang in model.
The government wants women to go out to work more. The choices made by women between working and looking after children are accordingly receiving a great deal of attention. This report describes which factors influence these choices by mothers with young children. The analyses, which are based on the situation in 2004, show that the family situation and income of mothers plays a key role in their decisions on work and childcare. The costs and availability of childcare facilities play a minor role; opinions, norms and values are much more important.
