A Statistic For Everyone

I stumbled across this purely out of luck.

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.

Thank JournalNow.com for that little nugget.  They found it in the US Census

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?
