A reasonable assumption is that by 2005 things were getting tougher, house prices had almost reached their peak as interest rates rose. As things get tougher for families with children the result will be that the wife will seek work instead of looking after the children fulltime. What will make this easier is that the husband is having his hours reduced. In some situations the wife finds it easier to obtain full time work so the husband removes himself from the labour market, resulting in less male participation.

this is a great site -- thanks for all the work.

one small request: can you make the data available as well as the charts? it would allow for others to try their hand at charting.

If you already do this (and I missed it), sorry for the waste of time.

Thanks again for the fun site.
