Abstract: In comparison to most other countries, the United States offers little support to new parents and few protections to workers with caregiving responsibilities. At the subnational level, however, states have adopted their own family policies over the last several decades. This report shares historical data on the adoption of state legislation granting maternity, parental, family, and sick leave rights and provisions to private and public sector workers. It builds on previous reports of subnational family policy by providing the enactment, effective, and amendment dates of state legislation from 1942 to 2017. This new data will support research on the causes and consequences of subnational social policies and cross-state comparative research on poverty and inequality.
