Waldfogel, Jane. 2007. «Parental Work Arrangements and Child Development ». Analyse de politiques / Canadian Public Policy, vol. 33, no 2, p. 251-271.
Intentions : « [T]he focus of this paper is on how parental work arrangements affect children across the three major domains of child well-being: cognitive development, social and emotional development, and health. » (p. 252)
Échantillon/Matériau : Studies from Canada, United States and United Kingdom. « [...] I place greatest weight in this review on the studies that have done the most to control for selection bias. This means that I give first priority to randomized controlled studies, where those exist, and next priority to ’quasi-experimental’ or ’natural experiment’ studies that take advantage of natural variation in policies or programs that induce otherwise similar »parents to take up employment or to use a particular type of child care. » (p. 253)

« This article synthesizes what we know and do not know about the links between family work arrangements and child development, drawing on research from Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. The paper reviews the evidence about how parental employment affects children’s cognitive development, social and emotional development, and health; summarizes knowledge gaps; and makes recommendations for future Canadian policy-oriented research. » (p. 251) This article is relevant for researchers working on the family in Quebec since it presents some studies about the specificities of the 5$/day child care program and the parental leave program.
