The National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families released a new infographic  (http://www.hispanicresearchcenter.org/multimedia/infographic-the-average-day-of-low-income-latino-parents/) comparing the average day of a Latino parent to days of their white and black peers, based on data from the American Time Use Survey. We know that the activities of daily life—including work and work schedules—shape the quantity and quality of time that mothers and fathers have available to spend with their children. Our analysis finds that in a typical day, low-income Latina moms spend over three hours in housework—more than low-income white and black moms. And, low-income Latino dads spend more time in paid work, but less time with their children than low-income white or black dads. The infographic also features other interesting stats, including what parents are doing when they spend time with their children.
