Unpaid Caregivers

April 3, 2010 at 1:00 pm 1 comment

In 2008, approximately 43.5 million Americans served as unpaid caregivers to a family member over the age of 50. Nearly one-fifth of employed people were caregivers who provided care to a person over age 50.

This important statistic can be found in “Work-Life Balance and the Economics of Workplace Flexibility”, a report by the President’s Council on Economic Advisors, released at the recent the White House Forum for Workplace Flexibility [Youtube: Opening Session, Closing Session]. The report was released in a post at Whitehouse.gov by Cecilia Rouse.
