Paternal leave

In Sweden, two months of the post-baby leave has to go to the father.

85% of them now take it.

Most interesting stat: A mother’s future earnings increase on average 7 percent for every month the father takes leave.

Also:
Among those with university degrees, a growing number of couples split the leave evenly; some switch back and forth every few months to avoid one parent assuming a dominant role — or being away from jobs too long.
