Are there more Stay-at-Home Moms than Full-time Working Moms in The USA?

Ladies I need numbers!

If anyone know about these statistics please post the information source.

It is for a project!

Thanks.

  • "Roughly four-in-ten women, including 34% of women with children age 17 or younger, do not work outside the home. According to a 2007 Pew Research Center survey, these at-home moms are slightly younger, on average, than moms who work full or part time. They have less formal education and lower household incomes than working mothers. Only 21% of at-home moms are college graduates, compared with 34% of working moms. And, while 37% of at-home moms report an annual household income of less than $30,000, only 20% of working moms fall into this income category.2 "

    I don't fit this either. I have a Masters in Accounting and I was 30 when we had our first and I decided to stay home with our children. My husband makes 350k a year. Most of the women in my neighborhood stay home only the single moms work and even a few of them have wealthy ex husbands who pay for them to be home. They never called my house for research.lol

    I don't fit this statistic at all! 27 yrs old with an 18 mo old. Have a bachelor's degree and 2 classes away from my masters. Household income is WELL over 30k. Interesting though.

  • I don't fit it either. However, I am a military wife, and the majority of the women that are military wives around here fit the statistic.
