Wondering which part of the country is most willing to forego work and be a stay-at-home parent?
The East South Central region (Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama) is the part of the country that is most willing to become stay-at-home moms and dads, with 66% of those surveyed answering in the affirmative. That's followed by the Pacific region (Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, Hawaii) with 61% answering the same.
When it comes to the region that is least likely to stay at home full time, the answer might surprise you. Progressively liberal people in New England put up the most resistance to placing parenthood over career, with half of those surveyed saying they wouldn't give up work.
