Event Type(s): Seminar

Speaker: Kelly Musick, Associate Professor, Department of Policy Analysis and Management, Cornell University

About the Talk: Recent media attention highlights the exceptional nature of intensive parenting in the U.S. and raises questions about implications for parental well-being. This project assesses the multidimensional nature of subjective well-being associated with having a child in the home and time spent in activities with children. We use a new well-being module in the 2010 American Time Use Survey (ATUS) that includes respondent reports of momentary well-being in three randomly selected activities throughout the day.
