This report investigates the impact of work on parents' and children's wellbeing. Using data from 'Growing Up in Australia, the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children' (LSAC) and the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics (HILDA) survey, it examines the impact of working hours, job security, and work-related control and flexibility on mental health and wellbeing for parents and children. It also compares the effects for different child age groups (infants, preschoolers and adolescents), family types (single and two-parent families, and dual-income and one-bread winner families), socioeconomically disadvantaged families, and for mothers versus fathers.
