    "The financial situation of families strongly depends on household composition. Lone parents and two-parent-families differ according to poverty-risks and claiming of social benefits. The following paper examines mothers' duration of unemployment-benefit-II-reception with administrative data and estimates the chances to leave this welfare system. Both types of households possess different resources and opportunities. The analysis focuses on how child care responsibilities, individual labour market opportunities and subjective orientations influence the chances to end the status of being in need. Special attention is paid to the question whether these factors operate differently for both types of households. Child care responsibilities constrain lone parents to a higher degree while two parent families have a structural advantage which is due to the presence of two adults in the household."
