Definitions: Single-parent: a male or female householder who resides with related children under the age of 18 with no spouse present.

Married couple: two individuals involved in a formal or common-law marriage. As of 2013, married couple includes same-sex married couples.

Related Child: any child under 18 years old who is related to the householder by birth, marriage, or adoption 

The American Community Survey determines poverty status by comparing the householder's total family income in the past 12 months with the poverty threshold appropriate for the householder's family size.

Percentages represent the number of related children living below poverty with a single-father, or single mother householder as a percentage of all children residing with a single-father, or single mother householder.

Data Source: These were derived from 5-Year Estimates Detailed Table B17010 (data.census.gov/).

Footnotes: The category "single father" includes: grandfathers, uncles, brothers, cousins, etc. This category includes any male householder residing with a child related by birth, marriage, or adoption.

The category "single mother" includes: grandmothers, aunts, sisters, cousins, etc.  This category includes any female householder residing with a child related by birth, marriage, or adoption.  

Please note that each estimate has a margin of error above or below, which can be quite large for smaller Wyoming counties.
