Have you ever wondered about your share in the total U.S. population? Who are the single parents in our society? Is the general perception of the low income, isolated single parent accurate? How many single parents are there? How much money do they earn? What are the average child support payments?
These are just a few questions not only Lisa and I may have been wondering about. The bad news here is that there are virtually no easily accessible sources to get straight-forward answers to these questions. The good news, however, is that answers are available, if you are willing to dig deep into databases and if you are willing to spend some time researching. We have started that research and examined the most recent public data.
Before you read the numbers, here are a few remarks.
> The source for our data is exclusively the U.S. Census Bureau and the most recent data published.
> While we have made sure that we collected the exact data published by the Bureau, we do not claim that the data published here is complete and accurate.
> The data is sourced from various reports that show slight variations in the values published, which is due to different ways the data was collected and different years the data was published. If you find any inaccuracies, don’t blame us.
> However, if you discover an actual mistake or if you notice that there is more recent or additional data available, please send us a note and we gladly include the update. Please do not forget to add a link to the data source to your message.
We will update this article with additional numbers every week. Eventually, it will provide single parent information on various topics, including single parenting, children, relationships, child custody, education, employment and financials.
