2.5 million – The number of single fathers in 2006, up from 400,000 in 1970. Currently, among single parents living with their children, 19 percent are men.
19%. Wow. That’s less than 1 in 5.
I wonder how low that stat was 20 years ago?
Somehow, I doubt that there are 4 single dads in five that don’t want their kids living with them. Call it a hunch. But you can create your own assumptions from that information, can’t you?
