This is a topic on one of the other boards I'm on but no one can seem to find any statistics. Most votes are going for Utah or bible belt states.
Anyone have any opionions or ideas on where I could find statistics on something like this?

There's a good number in Nevada.

Not an overwhelming amount (plenty of women work). But homeschooling is really big in LV.

(Sorry, don't know any stats.)

Here where I live many women would like to be "stay at home" moms, but can't because it usually takes two incomes to make it.

What exactly is a stay at home mom? Does it include moms unwillingly inbetween jobs? Moms who work opposite shifts from the husbands? Welfare moms? Moms who work school hours only? Moms who work full time from the home? Moms who run daycares out of their houses?

aha! excellent questions! i work full time but am home all but 4 hours - my kids don't go to aftercare or daycare - WHAT AM I??? i have a friend whose husband works the 4-12 shift - is he a stay at home dad even though the kids are in school all day? does working during the day only qualify you to be a WOHP? quite the conundrum, I tell ya.

but to answer the OP - I have no idea. Utah's a pretty good guess, I guess. This link may give some answers, I'm too lazy to look, lol:

It means moms who are married. The husbands work and provide financially for the family and the mother chooses not to work, but rather stay home with the kids and manage the household.

But stay at home moms help save money by not needed daycare.

I work in a pediatrician's office in Colorado, and I disagree. Many of our moms work from the time the kids are very little. I had a pt yesterday who had two kids ages 6 mo and 18 mos and she was working "just" three days a week! Whew!

Texas because of all the money and traditional concepts. You have neighborhoods like River Oaks, Memorial, Katy, Highland Park, Southlake, Alamo Heights, Tarrytown, Pemberton Heights, Old Enfield...ect...

You mean, financially well off families because most families can't do it on one income. I don't know a lot of women who want to work and miss out on their toddlers and babies. They are forced to.
