Women who work in temporary jobs are less likely to have had a child before the age of 35 than those in steady employment, new research has revealed.
The longer a woman remains as casual workers the worse her chances of giving birth before her mid-thirties become, the study found。
Researchers claim women who have been in temporary employment for five years are 35 per cent less likely to have a baby by 35 than their permanently employed counterparts。
Just one year of casual work can still increases the chance of a woman remaining childless in her mid-thirties by eight per cent。
The statistics were not affected by a woman’s social background, the team from the University of Adelaide said。
They believe the study shows women want financial stability before choosing to have a baby。
Professor Vivienne Moore, of the University of Adelaide, who led the research, said: “Our results show that having children at an older age and childlessness are not just a matter of individual women’s choices. They reflect the broader structural arrangements in society。
“Regardless of their socioeconomic circumstances, women generally aspire to economic security prior to starting a family。”
The team interviewed 663 women aged 32 to 35 and asked them about major life events from the age of 15 onwards。
They hope the findings will encourage governments to introduce more family-friendly policies to help future parents achieve financial security ahead of the arrival their first child。
