Why This Indicator Matters

A large body of literature on family structure and child wellbeing documents the disadvantages confronted by children growing up in single-parent families (Hair et al. 2015 and Ratcliffe 2015). It is also worth noting, however, that many of the challenges faced by children in single-parent families are complicated by other factors that co-occur with single-parenthood, like lack of economic resources or time.
