Paid work and unpaid care work reorganised

52% more time

is used on average by women for unpaid care work per day in comparison to men (2012/2013). This difference is called the “Gender Care Gap”.

Two thirds

of all people in need of care in private households are primarily nursed by a woman (2018).

54% of children

under the age of three have full-time day care places; 30% have extended part-time places (2017).

41% of fathers

received Parental Allowance (for children born in the 3rd quarter in 2017).
