Abstract

A family with a woman as the head of the family is a situation where the father dies (death divorce ) or is separated from the mother (divorced) causing the woman who was previously a wife to become the head of the family. The method used in this study is descriptive quantitative using primary data, obtained from questionnaires distributed to 42 respondents, namely female heads of families who work in the informal sector. Data were analyzed using SPSS 24 program with multiple linear regression analysis method. The results showed that the working time of female heads of household was influenced by income, age and number of children. While the level of education has no effect on the outpouring of working hours for women heads of families of informal workers. Suggestions, it is better for women workers to improve their quality by continuing to hone their skills and creativity to increase working hours and increase income with existing capabilities, and the government should pay attention to their welfare, by providing nodal assistance in micro, small and medium enterprises.
