INFOGRAPHIC: Metro examines the increase in stay-at-home moms
Metro examines a recent U.S. survey that shows more working moms are returning to the homestead.
In a recent survey, 42% of the U.S. population think mothers should not work at all, 40% think mothers should work full-time, 12% part time and 6% aren’t sure.
For years, the majority of women have chosen to work rather than stay at home. But according to data, the trend seems to be reversing.
On average, 54% of mothers across the globe are employed.
Sweden and Netherlands have the highest share of working moms (76%), Belgium has 66%, and the United States has the lowest percentage of working mothers at 61%.
