This explanatory study involved 240 intact families with school-age children each 120 families with SWF (Stable Work Families) and USWF (Un-Stable Work Families), selected by disproportional stratified random sampling. The research was conducted in eight sub-districts and four districts of the two administrative regions (Bogor regency and municipality, West Java Province, Indonesia). Data collected include: family characteristics, family economic pressures and the welfare of the family. The result revealed that SWF have a total, objective and subjective family welfare higher than the USWF. It also showed that the more stable the job of families, the higher the prosperity of the family; the greater the total expenditure, the higher the welfare of the family and the lower the ratio of expenditure on income per capita, the higher the family welfare.
