Chinese Abstract

本文探討3足歲以下子女照顧決策的影響因素,採用線型機率模型( Linear Probability Model )分析婦女條件、配偶條件及子女條件對最小子女未滿3足歲以前是否由父母自己照顧的影響。迴歸結果顯示,整體而言,配偶的家務工作時間及有超時工作現象對是否由父母照顧具正向影響,婦女的教育程度、工作經驗及配偶的收入則為負向影響;另將子女分齡後再進行迴歸分析,其中最小子女未達幼幼班學齡者,配偶的家務工作時間對是否由父母照顧具正向影響,婦女的教育程度、工作經驗、配偶的收入及最小子女目前年紀則為負向影響,而最小子女已達幼幼班學齡者,配偶的家務工作時間對是否由父母照顧具正向影響,婦女與配偶的教育程度及婦女的工作經驗則為負向影響。

English Abstract

This study explores the factors that influence parents’ childcare decisions making for children under 3 years old. Using the Linear Probability Model to analyze the effects of mother conditions, spouse conditions, and children conditions on whether the youngest child was taken care of by their own parents before the age of 3. The regression results show that spouse’s doing housework hours, and working overtime both have a positive impact on parental care. On the other hand, the mother’s educational level, work experience, and spouse income have negative impact. Furthermore, the same model was applied to test whether there’s a difference between the youngest child age group. For the youngest child that hasn’t meet the age of 2, the spouse’s doing housework hours has a positive impact on parental care, while the mother’s educational level, work experience, spouse income and the current age of the youngest child have negative impact. Besides, in the case of the youngest child that has reached the age of 2, the spouse’s doing housework hours have a positive impact, while both parents’ educational level and the mother’s work experience has negative impact.
