Description: Here we offer open access to the Familydemic Cross Country and Gender Dataset (FCCGD), which offers cross country and gender comparative data on work and family outcomes among parents of dependent children, before and during the Covid-19 pandemic. It covers six countries from two different continents representing diverse welfare regimes as well as policy reactions to the pandemic outbreak. The FCCGD was created using the first wave of a comparative, web-based international survey (Familydemic) carried out between June and September 2021, on representative samples of parents (aged 20-59) living with at least one child under 12 in Canada, Germany, Italy, Poland, Sweden and the US. While individual datasets are not available due to country-level restriction policies, the presented database allows for cross-country comparison of a wide range of employment outcomes and work arrangements, the division of diverse tasks of unpaid labour (housework and childcare) in couples, experiences with childcare and school closures due to pandemic and subjective assessments of changes to work-life balance, career prospects and the financial situation of families. The detailed description of how the dataset was created can be found in Data Descriptor published in Scientific Data (Springer Nature): IMPORTANT: Before accessing the data please DOWNLOAD IT as the built-in OSF browser distorts the tables.
