U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature for March 21: Single Parent's Day

WASHINGTON, March 21, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:

SINGLE PARENT'S DAY

Profile America — Tuesday, March 21st. This is Single Parent's Day– observed on this date every year since 1984 to recognize all those women and men who are raising children without partners. Single parent families may result not just from out-of-wedlock births, but also from divorce, a death in the family, or adoption. Historically, about 85 percent of children in America were raised in two-parent households. The number of single-parent families began to grow significantly around 1970, and today, just under 69 percent of children are raised by both parents. Of America's nearly 74-million children under 18 years, a little over 3-million are being raised by fathers alone. Close to 17 ¼-million are growing up with just their mothers. You can find more facts about America's people, places and economy, from the American Community Survey, at www.census.gov.
