  1. Source: FES data. Sample of single mother heads of household April 1978 to March 1992. Note: Income Support receipt is not included in this table – all of those whose status is UE or NP will be eligible for Income Support and are invariably observed to be receiving Income Support. 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).
