Home-Based Employment and Family Life, Hardback Book

Home-Based Employment and Family Life Hardback

Edited by Ramona K. Z. Heck, Alma J. Owen, Barbara R. Rowe


This book is about families who combine home life and income-producing work under the same roof.

Based on 899 homeworking households in nine states, the analysis presents detailed information about individual worker and household characteristics; work characteristics for both business owners and wage workers; family functioning types; management behavior; and adjustment strategies used in family life, the community context, and the home-based employment experience over an extended period of time.

This is the first publication of a serious longitudinal study of the phenomenon of working from home with historical considerations of how and why so many people are choosing this option.

It points to the significantly positive impact at-home workers are having on their families, their neighborhoods, and their communities.
