  1. Source: FES data. Sample of single mother heads of household April 1978 to March 1992. Note: UE=unemployed (defined as zero usual hours and economic position "searching for work"); NP=non-participants (hours<10 and not searching); LPT=lower part time (hours 10–19); HPT=higher part time (hours 20–29); and FT=full time (hours>29). Income Support is excluded from the table because of its very high take-up rate and it is available only to UE, NP and LPT status.
