What does "economically secure" children really mean?


This indicator measures the employment status of adults living in the household with their children. Children in households with no adults are coded as not having at least one parent with year-round, full-time employment. An adult is considered to work year round if they worked at least 50 weeks. An adult is considered to work full time if they usually work at least 35 hours per week.
