Abstract

This study explores the impact of level of education, cost and availability of child care, health of family members and welfare dependency among family members on the employment activity of single female heads of household. It attempts to determine if there is a significant relationship between four independent variables and the dependent variable. A sample of 30 single female heads of household was conducted in studying the relationship. The major finding in the study concludes that there is a significant impact of the cost and availability of child care on the employment activity of single female heads of household. The study also concludes that the health of a family member also impacts the employment activity of single female heads of household.
