Jobs for the boys department, # 2

Department for Work and PensionsReports seem to be sprouting from the Department for Work and Pensions like England flags on the cars of the masses. For those with even more time on their hands, may I recommend the 396-page: "Families with children in Britain: Findings from the 2004 Families and Children Study" which deals with the characteristics and circumstances of families with children in 2004. I won't even try to read or comment on this one, although I liked some of the definitions, such as 'lone father' ("a male lone parent"), 'lone mother'("a female lone parent"), 'mother' ("in the vast majority of couple families this person was female") and, best of all, 'not working' ("no work (i.e. working zero hours)").
