Why This Indicator Matters

The composition of families in America is constantly changing, and as a result, the type of primary caregiver in children's lives varies widely. Families may be headed by biological parents, step-parents, foster parents or other relatives. The number of caregivers in a household also varies widely, and increasingly, single parents have become primary caregivers in many families. Single parenting comes with a variety of unique challenges and research indicates that children growing up in single parent households face an increased risk for cognitive, financial, social and emotional concerns.
