    The New York Times combined survey data (economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/
    07/10/working-parents-wanting-fewer-hours/) with data from
    the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) (www.bls.gov/news
    .release/archives/famee_04262013.htm) comparing how mothers
    and fathers would like to allocate their time compared with
    what they actually do. They asked a sample of parents with
    children 18 or under:
    “If money were no object, and you were free to do whatever
    you wanted, would you stay at home, would you work full
    time, or would you work part time?”
    Percent of respondents to this question choosing each
    alternative are reported in the “Desire” columns of the table.
    Data in the “Actual” column are from the BLS. (Note:
    “Unemployed” = unemployed and actively seeking work.)
    The table reports column percents (which may not add to
    100% due to rounding)
