Twice the challenge: Single parents in employment

BIBB/BAuA-Factsheet 36

In Germany, nearly one-fifth of families with minor children are single parent families, and nearly one-third of these single parent families is at risk of poverty. Taking up a job is important for single parents, but given their family responsibilities, work puts additional strain on them. To learn more about the work and health situation of working single parents, we analyse data from the BIBB/BAuA Employment Survey 2018. The results show that single parents in employment have to cope with occupational and financial insecurities and report certain health problems more frequently.
