Analytical Brief 1 - Time Use by Moldovan Parents for Taking Care of Their Children

09 Jun 2014


The quality of human capital, which defines the competitiveness of each country, depends directly on the time parents allocate to the educational and cognitive development of their children, as well as on the way parents look after their children. In this analytical note, we will try to provide answers to the following questions:

  • Who spends more time taking care of children - mothers or fathers?
  • Do parents in rural areas take care of their children as much as the parents in urban areas?
  • How does the level of household income influence the time devoted to children care?
