Family and Care

23.05.19 | Tölfræði
The share of women who work in the Nordic countries is larger than the global average, which is partly the effect of commitments to more equal oppotunities for women and men related to family and care.

Parental leave

Both mothers and fathers are entitled to paid parental leave in the Nordic countries. In order to promote and facilitate gender equality at home and in the labour market, efforts have been made at the political level to encourage parents to divide the leave time equally. These efforts have yielded results: Nordic fathers take more parental leave than fathers anywhere else in the world.

Children in daycare

The Nordic region’s day care arrangements are among the most generous in the world. This is also reflected in the high share of children in day care.
