Definition and Source



The share of elementary-school age children (ages 6 to 12) whose resident parents are in the civilian labor force.
For children living in a married-couple family or subfamily, this means that both parents are in the labor force. For children living in a single-parent family or subfamily, this means the resident parent is in the labor force. The civilian labor force includes persons who are employed and those who are unemployed but looking for work.
