Australian researchers have observed that Australian care policy produces contradictory expectations about women's roles as paid workers and as carets for children or family members with a disability or age-related frailty (Cass 2006; Bittman et al.
Women and men are equally likely to be 'primary carers' for their partners or spouses, but women constitute over 90 per cent of primary carets for a child under the age of 16 with a disability (ABS 2012: Table 34).
These seeming carets, then, look like frequent attempts to correct some miscalculation of how much text would fit or be desirable to print before the end of the page by shifting the end just a few words later (or, much less often, earlier).
Things go askew because there is no seeming caret to mark a "free" page break away from a manuscript line ending; because the circles, pairs of virgules, or carets were entered twice on different but nearby lines, and only one set fits the printed page breaks; or because the markings in HM 136 diverge from the page break in Caxton's edition by as little as a few letters to as much as a couple of lines.
The test stimulus for the subject consisted of a display of 28 carets arranged in staggered rows, so that there were seven of the carets pointing in each of four directions (up, down, left, and right).
Post hoc analyses revealed that the tight variance was significantly more pronounced among subjects who did not characterize the DMT slide as hostile following full exposure (p = .012) and among those who reported relatively great difficulty in taking the caret test (p = .008).
The nature of the caring role is time consuming, stressful and hence many carets forgo their job or reduce their working hours to fulfil their caring responsibilities.
Women constitute the majority of carets in Australia.
If the choice of carets over letters indeed reduced response biases, it is conceivable that a necessary condition for Stanford's response-bias effect would be removed.
The preceding discussion also reveals that the change in targets from letters to carets did not reduce subjects' response biases, but neither did it increase them to a notable degree.
Studies in the United Kingdom (Sinclair, Gibbs & Wilson, 2004; Wilson et al., 2000) have identified a number of stressful events that can make or break foster carets. Stressful events place strain on caters beyond the normal daily hassles, mostly building up over time to the point where carets begin to feel that the negatives of fostering outweigh the positive benefits and rewards.
One of the positive aspects of the description of outcomes in the book is the non-pathologising of carets. The notion of burden, so common in the literature on caring, is replaced with a vision of strength and energy on the part of caters.
