Britain faces equality crisis as 'richer households take on more work but poorer ones lose out'

Britain faces equality crisis as 'richer households take on more work but poorer ones lose out' | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
BRITAIN is facing an equality crisis as richer households take on more and more work but poorer ones lose out, leading experts have warned.

The Resolution Foundation think-tank said efforts to improve the nation's work-life balance could actually make things worse for low-income families.

Women working more paid hours as men work less

Women working more paid hours as men work less | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
The split between genders in the amount of paid and unpaid work they do has shrunk over the last 40 years, according to a think tank.

A new study by the Resolution Foundation found that men in the UK are doing fewer paid hours and women more.

However, men get paid for 10 more of those hours a week than women do.

The foundation says that women and men are almost equal in terms of hours worked, clocking in 50 and 51 hours a week respectively.

Mobile devices don’t reduce shared family time, study finds

Researchers at Warwick and Oxford have carried out the first study of how family time has changed since the rapid diffusion of smartphones and other mobile devices
Scientists looked at data from around 2,500 children aged between 8 and 16 and their parents
Family time spent at home increased by 30 minutes a day between 2000 and 2015, but time spent in shared activities like eating and watching TV remained unchanged.
For all of the extra 30 minutes children are at home with their parents they say they are alone – which researchers refer to as ‘alone-together’ time.
Mobile devices were used during all aspects of family time in 2015 but were most heavily used during alone-together time.

A new income divide is emerging says report

A new income divide is emerging says report | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Gender differences in the amount of paid and unpaid work people do have shrunk over the past four decades, while the gap between low- and high-income households has grown to create a new ‘working time inequality’, according to a major new report published today by the Resolution Foundation.

The time of our lives, explores changes in people’s time use over the past four decades, how these shifts differ by gender, geography and household income level, and where these trends may head in post-covid Britain.

UK gender divide over paid and unpaid work narrows but remains wide | UK news | The Guardian

UK gender divide over paid and unpaid work narrows but remains wide | UK news | The Guardian | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
The gender divide between the amount of paid and unpaid work being carried out has decreased since the mid-1970s, according to a thinktank, but it remains significant.

In a study to examine changes in the last 46 years in how people use their time, the Resolution Foundation said men are now doing less paid work, while women are doing more.

It said women have increased their paid working hours by five hours and 18 minutes to 22 hours a week, while reducing their unpaid hours – such as time spent cooking, cleaning and taking care of children – by two hours and 44 minutes to 29 hours a week.

The Fatherhood Institute, supported by the Nuffield Foundation, has been compiling (and continues to compile) a literature library of mainly academic articles, book chapters and reports about fathers and fatherhood in the UK. 

This study is the most comprehensive review ever undertaken in Britain on decades of research into the roles of fathers in families. Our study period is from 1998 to the present day; and, in order to be included, publications must draw on empirical research (UK samples) or describe or reflect on relevant research methodologies, or on UK policy or practice. As of September 2017, we have collected and categorised more than 2,250 items.
