The Dirt on Cleaning: Men Share More of the Load Than You Think

Dust and stains remain unavoidable adversaries for consumers worldwide.  It’s not surprising, then, that we spend a significant amount of time trying to keep our homes and clothes fresh and clean. In Nielsen’s new Global Survey examining home cleaning and laundry habits, nearly one third of global respondents (31%) say they clean every day, and the same percentage (31%) say they do laundry daily, but cultural tradition, product availability, innovation, and financial considerations mean that the tools of the trade are different around the world. Today, 44% of respondents say the female head of household does the majority of cleaning. But that’s not to say men aren’t sharing in the load, as 17% of respondents say men do the majority of cleaning. See the full release to learn more about who’s doing the housework.

An estimated 1 in 68 (14.6 per 1,000) school-aged children have been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), according to a CDC report published March 31 in the Morbidity & Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) Surveillance Summary. This report shows essentially no change in ASD prevalence, the proportion of school aged-children with ASD, from the previous report released in 2014. However, it is too soon to know whether ASD prevalence in the U.S. might be starting to stabilize. CDC will continue tracking ASD prevalence to better understand changes over time. See the full release to learn more about the autism rates.
