  1. Note: Controlled for respondents age, educational attainment, activity status, partnership status and number of children. For those in couple also controlled for partner’s education and activity status. To measure attitudes towards “Mother’s role in the family”, we use the statement: “A pre-school child is likely to suffer if his/her mother works”. The attitudes are classified as either “traditional gender attitudes” (‘strongly agree’ and ‘agree’), “intermediate” (‘neither agree nor disagree’) and “egalitarian” (‘disagree’, and ‘strongly disagree’).
