Most Kids Live with Two Parents

June 25, 2003

The Census Bureau reports that about seven in ten children lived with two parents last year, leaving some 19.8 million living with only one parent -- 16.5 million with their mother and 3.3 million with their father. Children living with a single father were more likely to live in a household that included a live-in unmarried partner than those living with their single mother - one in three compared to one in ten.
